SYNOPSIS


Elinah (14 years old) is seven months pregnant and learning to be a stay at home wife. While living  with her much older husband in a foreign city far away from her village, Elinah often chatted with the baby in her tummy to fight boredom and loneliness. In the midst of an annoying day, Elinah and her baby decide to go home, to each of their respective homes.

Elinah, 14 tahun, tengah hamil tujuh bulan dan sedang belajar menjadi ibu rumah tangga. Tinggal bersama suaminya yang jauh lebih tua di kota asing yang jauh dari desanya, Elinah sering bercengkerama dengan bayi di dalam perutnya untuk melawan rasa bosan dan sepi. Di tengah hari yang menyebalkan, Elinah dan bayinya memutuskan untuk kembali ke rumahnya masing-masing.
