Eight people living in urban Indonesia embark on absurd journeys in order to fit into society. There’s a tale of a father who is desperate to win a green card lottery, another about a young girl who believes that firecrackers expel ghosts, and six other stories of locals hoping for a better life.
Well-known for his avant-garde shorts, experimental (and mononymous!) Indonesian filmmaker Edwin expands his scope with this IFFR prizewinner: a darkly comic chronicle of a Chinese woman adrift in Indonesia, structured in vignettes then arranged in patterns and parallels.
