An ageing mother and her adult son live alone on a small Indonesian island, rarely visited by tourists. While she carries the burden of everyday life, he is plunged into a dancing trance and transported to a completely different, spiritual dimension. Illustrated with beautiful images, this is a story of life at the crossroads of two worlds brought together by music and the immensity of parental love.
