In her magical dream worlds, ten-year old Tantri can be close to her beloved twin brother. But in the real world, her brother is in the hospital and no longer conscious. Tantri’s attempts to accept the painful reality intertwine with her fantasy and hope in poetic, almost playful scenarios . The film tells the story of a farewell from the girl’s perspective and evokes Indonesian traditions and nature in atmospheric and fantastical images. (HA)
