English Title: Beautiful Pain

Upon the discovery that their only son Danial is autistic, Alina and Razlan's world crumbles as they struggles to confront the harsh realities of raising a child disabled by a condition they hardly knew about. Razlan's inability to accept the truth causes friction within the family, but Alina's perseverance and maternal instinct help wade through the difficult times raising Danial. With her sister and a close friend by her side, they may have found a way to improve Danial's quality of life until a tragic accident causes the family to rethink its strategy.

Director’s Statement

Several years in the making, the inspiration for Redha came when the director met an old friend with an autistic child. Back when autism awareness was little, Tunku Mona took it upon herself to research about autism and how it inflicts families in Malaysia particularly, culminating in a story that yearns to be told. From a simple premise, the story evolved into one that was multilayered, inspiring honest, truthful and above all, universal. Redha, the film, is not just about autism – it is about family, it is about the people we might know. It is about us.
