Kala (Dead Time: Kala), or also known as (The Secret) is a 2007 Indonesian film noir thriller directed by Joko Anwar and starring Fachri Albar, Ario Bayu, Shanty and Fahrani. It was the second feature film for Joko, who previously directed the 2005 comedy film, Joni's Promise.



A nameless country is in a state of chaos as natural disasters, corruption, and street justice rise. Part of the people grow more violent, the other part hope for the arrival of a promised leader. A cop named Eros (Ario Bayu) is investigating the case of five men who were burnt to death by a mob after somebody screamed “thief” at them. A journalist whom suffering narcolepsy named Janus (Fachry Albar) is also covering the story. The two are quickly drawn into a labyrinth of mysteries and murders.

Janus accidentally discovers a secret. But everyone he tells the secret to soon finds a terrible death. When Eros also finds out of it, they both know that one of them has to die, unless they can find the promised leader before the angel of death arrives.
