Indriati, an 88-year-old Chinese-Indonesian woman, explores the meaning of her past name, which she was forced to change 60 years ago by the Indonesian government. Through a silver bird symbolising her past name, she connects with her true identity. The film is a powerful exploration of identity, memory, and cultural heritage. A reminder that our past is an integral part of our identity.
