We invite our audience to taste Indonesia in all its complexity and diversity.

 

Domio Instano Expendido

An instant noodle cult rules the Land of Wakuwaku on the Mawasino planet. The cult senior Caping Montanus loses his faith after eating the forbidden noodles offered by Disastrus, a man persecuted for blasphemy. On his contemplative journey, Caping Montanus meets Dewa All-Universal Instant Noodles, who enlightens him about the true taste of MSG.

 

Alif Wants a Girl, Yuli Wants a Ride

Alif falls in love with Yuli, a girl who prefers a man with a motorbike. When a handsome man appears, Yuli tricks Alif into getting cilok—a Sundanese tapioca dumpling, so she can flirt with the man. After being disappointed, Yuli returns home and sees Alif patiently waiting for her while holding the cilok she ordered.

 

Craving

Security guard Abdul has been looking tired lately due to the unusual cravings of his pregnant wife Lela. Spurred by superstitions that compel him to fulfil her wishes, Abdul travels across town tracking down hard-to-find Betawi dishes to feed Lela and their unborn son.

 

Happy Wednesday

Having been away from home for two years, Danang receives a visit from his father, who comes to Jakarta on a business trip. Behind the facade of success, Danang’s reality isn’t what he’d like his father to see, while his father harbours a secret of his own.
