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.
