Ikal is een middelbare school student in Gantong, een extreem arm dorp op het eiland Belitong. Hij en zijn vrienden - een groep die de Regenboogbende wordt genoemd - staan voor verschillende bedreigingen: de naderende sluiting van de school, de hebzucht van mijnbedrijven in de regio, de alsmaar toenemende armoede en een gebrek aan zelfvertrouwen.
