Screenplay, direction, production:

Chonie Prysilia, Hizkia Subiyantoro

Stories of five women of different generations and backgrounds, on their childless or childfree marriage, while living on one of the world's most populous islands; Java, Indonesia. In the community where women rarely get to give an opinion on their reproductive options, living a childless marriage, voluntarily or involuntarily, puts women in an uncomfortable spotlight more than their partners. It becomes a sensitive topic they avoid most of the time. For almost all of them, this is the first time they speak freely about it. From traumas and pressures, to revelation and conclusion, through a series of animation scenes, puts the audience in touch with their untold thoughts and undocumented experiences.
