An elite SWAT team is tasked with raiding a derelict apartment building inhabited by gangsters in the heart
of Jakarta’s slums. Their mission is to take down a notorious drug lord. When a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover, the power is cut off and all exits are blocked. Stranded on the 6th floor, the unit must fight their way through the city’s worst criminals to survive their mission.
