This lyrical debut feature by Kamila Andini combines a strong environmentalist message with a timeless coming-of-age story. The story is set on a small island inhabited by members of the Bajo tribe, a nomadic fishing community of the Wakatobi Islands. After her father is lost at sea, twelve-year-old Pakis keeps treasuring the mirror he gave her, hoping that (according to Bajo belief) he will return and appear reflected in it. Then a young man comes into her life, threatening conflict between Pakis and her mother.
