Young Indonesians living a punk lifestyle are being persecuted by the "Sharia police" of the country. Many punks have recently been arrested in Banda Aceh, Indonesia's most devoutly Muslim province, purportedly to be re-educated.

« Punk is not dead », en tout cas pas en Indonésie. Pourtant la police de la charia est à leurs trousses. Il y a quelques mois les gardiens de la vertu ont organisé une grande rafle à Banda Aceh. Une soixantaine de punks a été arrêtés, tondus et placés en centre de correction. Un seul objectif : les rééduquer pour leur « faire oublier leurs comportements déviants. » Que sont devenus les punks après leur lavage de cerveaux? D'autres à Jakarta emploient la méthode plus douce : pour les remettre dans le droit chemin, d'anciens punks font réciter le Coran à ceux qui, sous le voile, portent la crête. Bienvenue chez les punks musulmans.
