It is a story of a carpenter’s son named Joko Widodo who lives in a small house by a river. Deprived of an affluent childhood, this duck egg hunter doesn’t deter from pursuing a higher education.
His love for Iriana, his sibling’s friend, becomes a motivating force in the face of challenges. The death of Notomiharjo, a parent, teacher, as well as bestfriend doesn’t drag him down.
His effort to prove his father’s teachings drives him to work harder. From Srambatan, a small village by the river, Joko eventually becomes the leader of Solo. Now he is better known as Jokowi, a nickname given by a French entrepreneur.
Originally the title was A Little Story from Solo.
