Merantau Warrior International Trailer (2010)

International trailer for Merantau Warrior.

Written and directed by Welsh-born Gareth Evans, Merantau Warrior stars Iko Uwais as Yuda, a young farmer and skilled Silat practitioner from Minangkabau in West Sumatera. Following a centuries old tradition, Yuda is about to embark on his 'merantau', a rite of passage that requires him to leave his home and family to make a name for himself in the wider world. He heads for the bustling city of Jakarta, where he immediately finds himself homeless, jobless and alone. A chance run-in with a juvenile street thief, Adit, leads Yuda to an encounter in which he is compelled to defend Adit's elder sister, Astri, from a violent situation involving her abusive employer, Johni, and his henchmen.

Unknown to Yuda, Johni is a major supplier of local girls to a human trafficking ring led by a volatile psychopath, Ratger, and his right-hand man, Luc, and he needs Astri to make up the numbers in his latest delivery. Johni kidnaps the girl and, once again, Yuda comes to her aid, this time rescuing her from the traffickers' clutches in a striking one-man assault on their headquarters. Injured in the confrontation, Ratger determines to seek bloody retribution and to recover his 'merchandise' in the process. Yuda, Astri and Adit are forced to go on the run in the unforgiving city with a swarm of pimps and gangsters dogging their every step. With escape seemingly beyond their grasp, Yuda realises he has no choice but to face their foes head-on in a no-holds-barred showdown.
