Here's the salt of the earth surviving in intolerable condition's. This documentary expresses the extreme hardships of villagers not only in Indonesia but globally. Shame on wealthy developing nations and tyrannical governments that don't solve these basic survival problems. Thank you.

I really enjoyed Mbok Giyem, she knows how to explain her problems in a cristal clear manner.

this is a provokative without overdramatic documentary film.
