Siti, a Malaysian Moslem woman and Sukran, an Acehnese boy, have a common link: Sofyan. Sofyan is Siti’s love interest and Sukran calls him “Bapak”. But nobody knows if he is Sukran’s father. And nobody really knows if Siti and Sofyan are in any relationship.
Sofyan’s life is shaped by the political situation in Aceh. The existence of Free Aceh Movement and its tension with the Indonesian government affects all Acehneses’ lives. But how does it affect Siti’s life, a woman living in Malaysia? When the Aceh tsunami occurred and Sofyan went missing, their lives became even more complicated and they were left with questions. When someone goes missing, one keeps hoping that that person will come back, but how long can one wait?
This story is based on a short film, which is presented here as a full-length play; actual footage from the film will be projected during the performance.
