Jamal (Tanta Ginting), a professional driver, gets a $10,000 offer from Ivan with the requirement that he should accompany Dito (Donny Alamsyah) to an address that has been written on a letter. Strangely, Dito gives Jamal a gun and handcuffs. Jamal doesn't care, because he is interested in the $10,000 that was prepaid. Apparently, Jamal is trapped in Dito's Checkmate Adventure that is run by High Land Boss (Cecep Arif Rahman) and Mami Tuti (Hanah Al Rasyid) who want to kill him. Dito is chased because he proposes to break open an international heroin cell which is found in candy and chooses kids as victims. The choice between Dito, Jamal, High Land Boss, and Madam Tuti makes their journey so challenging and bloody. But Dito is a hand-to-hand expert because he can win [or use] against his rivals. In the end, Jamal and Dito can change the checkmate position and report the real criminal to the police.

Indonesian Actioner, SKAKMAT, Gets A Stylish New Poster
Actor and martial artist Cecep Arif Rahman is making a killing this season with several things now happening. His latest appearance in Anggy Umbara's sci-fi action thriller, 3, is getting some coverage next week at the Los Angeles Indonesian Film Festival, and he's currently rehearsing with Amy Johnston for The Tank helmer Kellie Madison's The Gate.
More to the point though, his newest film, Skakmat, has officially begun a promotional campaign now sporting some new poster art. Ody C. Harahap directs and it's got a great cast so far with actor Tanta Ginting joining Donny Alamsyah and Hannah Al-Rasyid, neither of whom the latter two are strangers to the action genre with titles like The Raid and Comic 8: Casino Kings under their respective belts. The first one-sheet debuted just a few days ago, and now you can check out the latest below.
Stay tuned for more info and a teaser that will hopefully get here very soon.
