The film depicts a unique universe where time and space do not function as normal. The unpredictable plot and depictions of Malaysian folklore make this a one-of-a-kind exotic thriller drama. In addition to the exquisite and colourful cinematography, the film contains imaginative animated sequences from the world of the turtles.

With its creative mix of genres and rich visual style, Stone Turtle earned high praise at the Locarno Film Festival, where it also came away with the International Federation of Film Critics Prize.
