Three brothers return to their home, each with their own path and each with their own fate. Kickboxer Adil, the youngest, is on the run from an illegal fight, while Ilham, a hired assassin and the oldest brother, hunts for his next prey. It is the middle brother, Bakar, an opportunist, that sets them all on a collision course of deceit, regret and murder.

Adil is extricated from the fight by his childhood friend, instantly turning them into fugitives. An assassin, Ilham (FAIZAL HUSSEIN), is set loose on the runaway fighter’s trail as the young men flee home to the village of Bunohan (Murder). Bunohan is also Ilham’s hometown to which he has never returned since he left. Meanwhile, Bakar (PEKIN IBRAHIM), Adil’s elder brother, returns from the city, ostensibly to look after their ailing father. But behind this mask of a dutiful son is an ambitious businessman and vicious player, screening the depths of corruption, greed and lust for power that will unravel the lives of all.

The three men arrive home where fate awaits them. As the shadows of their darker selves rise, memories of longing, retribution and loss flood back. In BUNOHAN, home is where the heart breaks.

BUNOHAN adalah sebuah kisah tragik kasih sayang antara tiga beradik dan bapanya yang kian uzur. Kisah pergelutan mereka untuk merapatkan ikatan kekeluargaan dan restu, beransur ke arah keganasan, korupsi dan pembunuhan.

Filem ini bermula jauh di kampung pedalaman bahagian selatan Thailand, berdekatan sempadan Malaysia. ‘Bunga Lalang‘ atau Adil (ZAHIRIL ADZIM) mengambil bahagian dalam pertandingan tinju Tomoi yang melibatkan pertaruhan wang, maruah dan nyawa. Sahabat lama Adil sempat menyelamatkannya dari pinggir maut, mengubahkan mereka menjadi pelarian penganjur pertinjuan haram tersebut. Ilham (Anugerah Skrin 2003, Pelakon Sokongan Terbaik, Faizal Hussein), seorang pembunuh upahan dihantar untuk memburu mereka sesedang kedua-dua sahabat itu berada dalam perjalanan pulang ke Kampung Bunohan.

Kampung Bunohan juga merupakan kampung halaman Ilham yang sudah lama ditinggalkan. Ilham tidak pernah pulang walaupun ketika ibunya berada di anjung nyawa. Pada waktu yang sama, Bakar ( PEKIN IBRAHIM) abang sulung Adil juga pulang ke Kampung Bunohan kononnya untuk menjaga bapa mereka yang uzur. Perwatakan solehnya tersembunyi niat buruk seorang usahawan bercita-cita tinggi. Bakar seorang yaang berhati kejam yang sanggup melepaskan segalanya untuk mencapai kekayaan. Sekembali mereka bertiga ke kampung halaman di mana takdir mereka menunggu.

Dalam bayangan kegelapan diri masing-masing timbul, memori silam yang dipenuhi keinginan, penghukuman, dan perasaan kehilangan. Dalam BUNOHAN, di sinilah bermulanya segala keperitan.
