The last time she saw the congkak board, a traditional Malay toy, she was still a kid. Mak Jah was playing with it, talking to it. It was unsettling, and back then she didn’t understand.
Now she’s grown up with two kids. The congkak board reappears after years in storage, forgotten but not gone. And with it comes the family curse, Sunok, a spirit that demands care and attention in return for favours.
It’s a family curse, passed down through the generations. She tries to keep it away from her children, but there’s only one way to stop Sunok from claiming her entire family.
‘Inheritance’ was in the shortlist of top 20 films for the 16th DigiCon6 Asia (Singapore) selection.
