Indonesia in the 1990s. The authoritarian Suharto regime has been in power for three decades. Poet Wiji Thukul is a fearless critic of the government and his lines are chanted by crowds at demonstrations. When in July 1996 riots break out in Jakarta, Wiji and other activists are held responsible. He flees to Pontianak on Borneo, changes his identity several times and continues to publish poetry under a pseudonym. But the separation from his family is a heavy burden. As a dissident he has to remain visible to be heard. Wiji takes a big risk and ventures out of his hiding place. The biopic hauntingly describes the loneliness of exile and portrays the famous Indonesian writer's last weeks, who has been missing since 1998.
