Nagabonar, a rapscallion pickpocket from Batak and a (self-proclaimed) general during Indonesia’s War of Independence, raised his son, Bonaga, alone, after his wife died in childbirth. But when Bonaga visits his dad on the family palm oil plantation in Medan with a big new business scheme, everything changes: the son wants to turn the plantation (where his mom is buried) into a resort and sell it to Japanese investors! A hilarious and surprisingly touching comedy directed by Deddy Mizwar, who also stars in the title role.
