Delicate short film by this former Tiger Awards candidate and leading cinematographer of what is known as the Malaysian New Wave. Shot in an enchanting black & white. Performed by the young talent Wong Zi Jiang, who can also be admired in this year's competition film Flower in the Pocket.
A boy comes home soaking wet one day. Later he gets a fever and thinks he's going to die.
The title refers more to Faulkner than to the heavy metal band of the same name.
