This documentary by Michael Rubbo (Waiting for Fidel) offers candid glimpses of Indonesia and its people. Filming in and around the capital of Jakarta, the cameras follow where chance leads, capturing the flavour of life in this fertile crescent of tropical islands. Throughout the film, the focus is on a society caught between the past and the conflicting options for the future - to change or not to change from long-established patterns of life to ones more influenced by western technology.

    In Indonesia, we have a joke, "In this country (Indonesia) there are only three honest Policemen: The Policeman Statue, The Sleeping Policeman (speedbumps), and General Hoegeng". This joke is coined by none other than the fourth president of Indonesia, Abdurrahman Wahid. General Hoegeng was very well known as a humble, modest, and honest person, even when he has the topmost position in Indonesia's law enforcement institution.
