A breathtaking and eye opening movie! Script is on point, the visuals are beautifully crafted. I think this movie is going to be an important piece for Indonesian teenagers. I imagine this to be a mandatory watch for sex educational purposes in schools.
This movie reflects the scary reality that is threatening coming-of-age adolescents. Not only in Indonesia, but everywhere in the world that uses social media.
And to address the elephant in the room. I believe the scandal of one of the main cast should not hinder the greater purpose of this film. Because this film is way greater beyond mere infotainment. I hope more people, especially Indonesians, can watch this movie.
Lisa and Sarah not only sit together in high school and do projects together but also have their problems. Lisa's mother, Ninda, demands a lot because she fears failure in her new household. Lisa became uncomfortable at home. Sarah is a rich kid who lost her parents due to an accident. She lives with her older brother. As a result, they seek answers in their way. Like most teenagers, the duo goes through puberty which sparks curiosity about sexuality. Lisa, who is curious about sex, watches adult movies. She becomes addicted to the point that she becomes obsessed with Fita, one of the women in the viral video. Lisa's curiosity about sexuality is not always understood. Meanwhile, Sarah meets Devan, who has a decade of the age difference. She thinks she has found someone to rely on. The boyfriend takes advantage of her innocence. Sarah is raped and becomes a victim of revenge porn. She does not receive social protection or even the law as a victim. She is alone.
