A charming and unclassifiable work. Instead of a linear narrative, one-named director Edwin uses a gently drifting series of images and episodes to follow the life of a young girl who is abandoned by her father to be brought up in a sprawling zoo in Jakarta. The second half of the film takes a different course as our heroine is lured outside her animal paradise into the more perilous world of humans.
