Four Indonesian citizens comes from different background as middle low class worker. They have one thing in common, they will cast their vote in presidential election. It's not about Prabowo or Jokowi anymore. It's about their hope for the 7th president of Indonesia, whoever win the election.
This was the second documentary movie I've watched this year. The theme about presidential election, about the hopes from four voters. Meet Nita, a domestic worker from Tangerang. There's also Amin, a farmer from Indramayu, who must work in state land and paid the rent for it. Another characters were Suparno and Sutara. Both families lives in very small house in very packed neighborhood.
These characters, with their own words, described their daily activities. How they dealt with difficulties in their lives. Most of all, their thoughts on this country and its leaders. With the upcoming elections, both legislative and presidential, they enthusiastically participated in both elections. Each person have their own candidates. Interesting to listened their opinions of each candidate they support, and their hopes to the next president, whoever wins the election.
The timeline of this movie expand way before 2014. You can see Jokowi's activities as mayor of Solo. Prabowo announced that he will stood beside Megawati as candidate for vice president on 2009 election. Simple to say, this movie was opened with some preface of what happened before 2014 election.
Supported by 19 videographers, this movie tried to portrait the daily lives of voters during this year's election. All characters came from middle-low economy class. They have hopes to each of their preferred candidate. When they talked, sometimes we will surprise of how they expressed their ideas. They used words that we don't think it will come from their mouth.
This movie, at least for me, reminded us to be grateful enough about our lives. Not only that, they're willing to participate in election, why can't we??? If they dare to dream, why can't we have the same dream too???
It's never about Candidate 1 or Candidate 2. It's about TRUST your leader. Once you trust them, it's your job to make sure they deliver. It's 2014, are you dare to dream for better Indonesia like these character?
