Five years earlier, Eliana flees her home in Padang when her parents want to marry her off. She stays in Jakarta but when she loses her job and is threatened with eviction, her mother arrives with two tickets and asks Eliana to return to Padang with her. This begins the film’s tale of one night between a mother and daughter. To prove her independence, Eliana roams around town in a rented cab to find her friend, Heni, who had helped her when she first arrived in Jakarta. Mother is also dragged along for the ride. Being together for a whole night allows the two to start understanding each other and improve their battered relationship.
The scenes were shot digitally then transferred to 35mm format.
