Peculiar Vacation and Other Illnesses

(Vakansi Yang Janggal Dan Penyakit Lainnya)

by Yosep Anggi Noen

Indonesia 2012, 90 min

Ordinary people. Unspoken desires. An unthinkable love.

Fed up with her daily routine, Ning takes on a new job at a furniture shop. There, she gets the opportunity to get away from her indifferent husband Jarot for a couple of days, having to deliver a sofa with her colleague Mur. Driving on windy roads up the mountains to the remote village where the client lives, a delicate love story evolves between the two. Meanwhile, left-behind Jarot is trying to figure out the meaning of the word “husband” while watching the matchmaking programs on TV.
