A film about looking for comfort in your imagination when you’re faced with the death of a twin. The twins Tantri and Tantra, brother and sister, are about 10 years old and live in a village near a mountain in Indonesia. They play together constantly and know one another inside out. One day, the brother becomes sick and it’s revealed that he has a brain tumour. At night, the sister dreams herself away to another place where her brother is healthy and they can once again do everything together. A stunning piece of cinema about dealing with grief.
