SYNOPSIS
After exchanging hundreds of nude pictures, Silah’s virtual lover, Aji (40s), suddenly disappears. After a period of time, Silah (40) tries to find Aji, with her aging husband as her companion. When they eventually meet, the real Aji is different from the virtual one.
The Aji Silah meets is a 21-year-old man hiding behind the photo of an older man, who looks like a police officer, that he found on the internet. However, Aji recognizes Silah because she only ever sent genuine photos. Aji is a construction worker building a luxurious hotel. Sometimes he sleeps at the construction site, alone. They discover that Aji′s real name is Syafi, and many other truths are revealed.
