Risking the future of her five-year old son in the hands of a hashish addict husband, an educated Indonesian lady, SULAIHA agrees to work as a maid in Kuala Lumpur. At the first sight of a physical abuse, she steals her own passport from her employer’s wardrobe and runs away to stay with her Indonesian boyfriend HISHAM. This relationship reveals the final days of student uprising against Suharto regimen and death of her younger brother RITZWAN in the street protests. But approval of Hisham’s political ambition means betrayal of RITZWAN and his martyrdom. Ungrudgingly, she dumps Hisham and walks away from him into the streets of Kuala Lumpur. Sulaiha succeeds in settling in a foreign country against all odds and begins a new life for herself and her family.
