This film is loosely based on the mass rapes of Chinese Indonesian women in May 1998 riots in Indonesia. It focuses on the story of May (14) who was gang-raped. Traumatized by the event, May imprisons herself in her house, living in silence and blocking out all emotions by constructing a protective bubble around her, while her father is trapped by guilt and keeps fighting in the boxing ring to channel all his anger and guilt. One day, a magician creates a small crack in May’s protective wall, gradually awakens May’s emotions and traumas.
