A night-hour safehouse for troubled youths, dropouts, runaways and delinquents of the Malay community is run by a pair of ex-offenders. When external intervention looms, it will take their collective efforts to keep the walls of their home up. Or will they come tumbling down? Written by Nessa Anwar, Rumah Dayak is an unflinching look at the struggle to guard a home built out of circumstances surrounding poverty, deprivation and abuse.

Rumah Dayak is the inaugural production by new collective Rupa co.lab, which comprises Hazwan Norly, Nabilah Said and Nessa Anwar.
