The Suharto regime has held power in Indonesia for over 30 years, shutting down democracy time and time again. Highly critical of the regime and unafraid to speak his mind, Wiji Thukul is a poet whose words are often yelled proudly by the crowd during political protests. When riots broke out in Jakarta in 1996, he and a few other activists were accused to be responsible. Forced to flee, Wiji escaped to Pontianak in Borneo where he hid for eight months, sometimes living with complete strangers. There, he had to change his identity several times, but continued to write poetry and short stories under a pen name. In the meantime, in Solo, Central Java, his wife, Sipon, lived with their two children under constant surveillance. In May 1998, when Suharto was deposed by his own people, Wiji Thukul was declared missing.

Rezim Suharto berkuasa di Indonesia selama lebih dari 30 tahun dan terus-terusan membunuh tumbuhnya demokrasi. Wiji Thukul, penyair yang kata-katanya sering diteriakkan dengan bangga oleh demonstran dalam protes-protes politik, sangat kritis terhadap rezim Suharto dan tak gentar menyuarakan pikirannya. Saat kerusuhan terjadi tahun 1996 di Jakarta, ia dan beberapa aktivis lain dianggap bertanggung jawab. Wiji Thukul terpaksa melarikan diri ke Pontianak, Kalimantan, dan hidup dalam persembunyian selama delapan bulan, kadang-kadang dengan orang yang sama sekali tak ia kenal. Di sana, ia harus mengubah identitasnya beberapa kali, tetapi tetap aktif menulis puisi dan cerita pendek dengan nama pena. Sementara itu, di Solo, Jawa Tengah, istrinya, Sipon, hidup dengan dua anak mereka di bawah pengawasan ketat. Bulan Mei 1998, ketika Suharto dipaksa lengser oleh rakyat, Wiji Thukul dinyatakan hilang.
