A John Doe with a bullet in the head is found unconscious on an Indonesian beach before being quickly taken in charge by a local hospital. Immersed in a coma, the young man can count on Ailin, a young doctor who watches over him. As a big fan of Moby Dick, she decides to call him Ismaël. But when Ismaël wakes up two months later, he remembers nothing. All he knows is that he’s alive and well. The rest? Frankly, as Donald Trump would say, he doesn’t give a fuck. Except that he still has a bullet in the head. Ailin proposes to take him to Jakarta when he can completely recover. But their journey will be interrupted by members of a formidable gang who have a very broad notion of collateral damage. As victims start falling like flies, Ismaël understands that he is the main target of these ugly gentlemen. And it’s for a very simple reason: Ismaël is the worst killing machine anyone has ever created, with or without a bullet in the head!
The Mo Brothers already showed their talents with Macabre (BIFFF 2010) and Killers (BIFFF 2014). With Headshot they prove that they’re the undisputed leaders of Indonesian genre cinema. Their recipe? Recycling the pitch for Jason Bourne and combine it with the incredible talents of Iko Uwais (The Raid 1 & 2, Star Wars VII) for a breath-taking action extravaganza which will hit you in the face at 200 km per hour.
