Men Who Save the World Feature film, 2014, 93 min.

In a quaint Malay village, the villagers unite to help Pak Awang to physically carry an abandoned house from the jungle into the village, as a gift for his daughter who is getting married. Coincidentally an illegal African immigrant, who is on the run, found the house by accident and decided to hide in it. When the village drug addict, mistook the black shadow he saw in the house as a ghost, the villagers fear that the relocation of the house has enraged the devil. The relocation of the house comes to a halt, much to the distress of Pak Awang. A series of wild mishaps befall the village and lead to false accusations, hilarious situations and ‘ingenious’ actions to protect the village from ‘danger’.
