Sakti is a handsome young architect living in Jakarta with his nagging mother. He is so deep in the closet that even he has not figured out he likes men. But those around him begin to suspect something is up when Sakti meets Nino, a good looking TV producer. Nia Dinata directs this satirical comedy about friendship, homosexuality, adultery, the shallowness of the nouveau riche – but most of all, about our ability to accept each other no matter the circumstances.

The film screening will be followed by a discussion and is free and open to the public.
