The Tender Coconut Tamasha

“A turbo-charged romp. Cinematically intense and vivid. Crying out to be filmed by Christopher Nolan.”

A vicious biological terrorist attack on the State Parliament.
The birth of an unlikely hero.
A city wracked by rampant misdemeanours.
A high-tech police unit to tackle the scourge of minor crime.
An epidemic of inexplicable deaths.
And it’s all because of coconuts.
