Documentary examining the anti-communist purge that took place in Indonesia between 1965-'66 in which an estimated one million people died at the hands of the miltary dictatorship. Born shortly after these tragic events, optician Adi sets out to confront those responsible for the death of the brother he never knew. He interviews former death squad leaders and, with the help of his family, questions how the country has still not accepted this part of its heritage. As he learns the shocking details from this period of history, Adi also discovers that the same threat of violence is still ever-present in his home country.
