(Short Film / 11 min) Cahaya, a 10-year old trash-picker from the slums of North Jakarta dreams of owning a bicycle. One day, while searching for recyclables, her wish comes true through an unexpected, fantastic find. Yet soon enough, the other children see her treasure and want it too - especially a neighborhood bully named Hasan, who corners Cahaya and steals the bike. Vowing to get it back at all costs, Cahaya goes to Hasan's house to reclaim what is hers. Yet when she arrives, she discovers Hasan's secret.
