13 Bombs - CinemAsia

An anonymous terrorist attack brings chaos to Jakarta. The leader of the attack, Arok, issues a mysterious ransom note demanding bitcoins, with the threat that 12 remaining bombs are scattered across the city, set to explode every 8 hours. Investigations by the Indonesian Bureau of Counter-terrorism lead to Oscar and William, the co-founders of the country’s cryptocurrency exchange, who are forced to cooperate to prove their innocence. The group races against time to save the city from destruction, and in the process, uncover the truth behind the assault.

Loosely inspired by the biggest financial fraud in Indonesian history, 13 Bombs marks a significant milestone as one of Indonesia’s most ambitious blockbusters that balances action-packed sequences with a humanistic approach, weaving together an intricate balance of perspectives and motivations, and questions the cost of power in our current society.
