In August 2015, seven indigenous children mysteriously disappeared from their remote boarding school in Malaysia.

After almost 50 days only two were found alive in the jungle. Their friends had already died from injury and starvation.

The tragedy devastated the close-knit Orang Asli community and many families blamed the boarding school for their children’s deaths.

Allegations of mistreatment were levelled against teachers as the tribe galvanised to stand up against what they say is generations of neglect and abuse by authorities.
