Sister Maryam (Maudy Koesnaedi, Si Doel) takes cares of elderly nuns in a nursing facility. One day, Yosef (Chicco Jerikho, Filoso Kopi), a handsome and liberal pastor arrives to lead the church. What begins with exchanging flirtatious glances on the sly develops into something more serious as Maryam and Yosef find themselves drawn irresistably to each other. Long dormant desires reawaken within Maryam, putting her at the crossroads between her passion and lifelong vow to God.
Nominated for the Asian New Talent Award at the Hong Kong Asian Film Festival, Ertanto Robby Soediskam tackles a heartbreaking tale of forbidden love with an Indonesian twist, by offering rare insight into its Christian community. He is a talent to watch, conveying the inner turmoil of his characters with subtle complexity amid a gorgeously lensed and devastatingly romantic milieu. The result is a deeply empathetic and beguilingly beautiful film reminiscent of Wong Kar-wai’s mood-soaked masterpieces.
