Synopsis

Rencana untuk menangani kemacetan lalu lintas di Jakarta dengan membangun monorail gagal akibat keputusan investasi yang buruk. Pembangunan itu tertunda selama 10 tahun. Beberapa bagian proyek konstruksi yang belum selesai itu menganjur ke arah jalan raya. Pembuat film dengan cermat mendokumentasikan 103 pilar beton bertulang yang menjadi monumen kegagalan besar yang tak bisa diacuhkan begitu saja.

An inventive plan for dealing with traffic jams in Jakarta by building a monorail failed because of poor investment decisions and was put on hold for 10 years. Pieces of the unfinished construction project jut out of the streets. The filmmaker carefully documents 103 reinforced concrete pillars that are impossible-to-ignore monuments to colossal failure (source: dokument-festival.com).
