It’s a documentary — took 6 years in the making — that tells the captivating story of Boni, Ho, and Titi, three gifted, charismatic street musicians in Jakarta over a tumultuous 5-year period in their own lives and that of Indonesia. The film follows the young marginalized musicians and their never-before-seen subculture, while also painting a striking, moody, and intimate portrait of Indonesia’s frenzied capital city. Using the powerful soundtrack of the musicians’ original compositions to drive the film, it traces their elusive quest for identity and love in a city overrun by the effects of globalization and corruption.
