Synopsis

The deserted showing does not dampen the spirit of Distra Budaya members to keep practicing kethoprak. One day they have an idea to make a performance to be uploaded on Youtube. They want to make a performance that can be seen by special people (people who can “see”) and make them known by the public. They have one purpose, entertaining the public.

Sepinya pementasan tidak menyurutkan semangat anggota Distra Budaya untuk tetap berlatih kethoprak, sampai suatu hari mereka memiliki ide untuk membuat pementasan untuk diunggah di Youtube, untuk bisa dilihat oleh orang awas (orang yang bisa “melihat”) dan bisa dikenal oleh masyarakat luas. Semangatnya satu, yaitu ingin menghibur masyarakat luas.
