Orked is ten. Mukhsin is twelve. They meet during one school holiday
and quickly become the best of friends. But what happens when your
best friend starts to regard you as his first love?
With "Mukhsin", I try to examine one common and uncomfortable
human experience: What happens when your best friend - someone with
whom you've been learning to do cool things like climbing trees,
flying kites and riding bicycles - starts to develop romantic notions
about you? I feel it's an interesting human condition to look at,
because I myself have never understood how, sometimes, something
as beautiful as Love can threaten to end something else that's just
as beautiful - Friendship.
