Set during an election year in Indonesia, Heni is a legislative council candidate in the middle of making a campaign video about a slum area on the outskirts of Jakarta. In the video, Heni will give a house to Satinah, an old widow, whom Heni objectifies just as a poor and miserable low-class citizen. Satinah’s inability to fake cry according to the needs of the video, frustrates Heni and makes her try every possible way to make Satinah cry naturally.
