LASTIK: ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE EAST
ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE EAST...
Donald wants to grow up to become a journalist but first, he must go back to his mother's hometown for the school holidays. There, his friends Muz and Zak are being bullied by two English boys who have taken their tree house, tin cans and rubber bands. It's up to Donald and his friends to reclaim what is theirs... through an all out rubber band match in the kampung!
Lastik: Once Upon a Time in the East' is a playful interpretation of how North Borneo journey towards independence from the British.
Introducing Keith Klaus as 'Donald', Ahmad Ilhan as 'Muz', Arrysh Harley as 'Zak', Yaacob Nasran and Alexander Berg.
