Synopsis

The Bali bombings of October 2002 changed the face of Indonesia. The incident opened a major debate and brought to the fore controversies regarding jihad, Islamic political movements, terrorism and human rights issues. The film follows NH Ismail, a journalist at The Washington Post and former room mate of one Bali bomber, as he meets both perpetrators' and victims' families. We find that the bombings in Indonesia have created many orphaned children, both in perpetrators' as well as victims' families. With incredible access to those who masterminded the bombings, Haryanto has made a compelling and important film.
