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?


(official synopsis)


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.

(Yasmin Ahmad)
