Sungai Ara (Fig River), which meanders along the Sungai Ara Linear Park, was certified as the cleanest river in Malaysia in 2015. This film by Andrew Ng Yew Han follows Rexy Prakash Chacko and Dr Kam Suan Pheng from Penang Hills Watch and Penang Forum in their journey exploring Sungai Ara from upstream to downstream.
