May 1998, Jakarta.
Heath of Indonesia; a land of opportunity, perhaps, for those of whom that are seeking.
Yu-Chen He, a Taiwanese accountant in dire need of work, went out to look for his fortune.
Hired eventually by his old friend, Zi-Jin Wan, Yu-Chen then attempts to settle in this place.
Many new faces are met, and it was through them that Yu-Chen began look into himself in a different manner.
Yu-Chin Wan, the little daughter of Zi-Jin, questions where her home truly is, and her self identity.
Pin-Hong Miao, a going-to-be mother, a Chinese teacher, contributes her love to all future generation.
Melati, the little girl from local Indonesian family, best friend of Yu-Chin, has her biggest wish as world peace.
It was not a peaceful place.
Fire. The smell of burning metal and rubber.
Peace. Peace. Peace. People speaks. In the form of violence.
“Aku mencintaimu”, they say.
Perhaps it was because of race. Perpahs it was because of wealth.
Perhaps it was because of culture. All of them led into hatred.
“Quid est nomen eius?”, they also ask, in the name of faith.
There may, or may not be a reply.
