1985. Secangkir Kopi Pahit – Bitter Coffee

Bitter Coffee is a strong and sobering film. It opens on the shores of Lake Toba in North Sumatra, as a Batak family celebrates (in a procession led by a band) the departure of their son who is going to the big city to be educated and to work. But an accident has just occurred on the lake, a woman has been drowned, and her maddened husband, Togar, in grief, interrrupts and breaks up the procession.
