It is May 1998, and riots have sprung up across Indonesia with attacks targeting the ethnic Chinese. Buildings are being set alight all around as helpless crowds watch their communities burn to the ground. Nina, a young Indonesian woman of Chinese descent, feels compelled to help her fellow student activists but finds herself in harmâs way amid the mass gang-raping of Chinese women. Despite the governmentâs best efforts to deny these allegations, the lives of many were dramatically changed by the traumatic events. Ninaâs heart-breaking experience is laced with cultural imagery and an emotional depth that will leave you awed. âA powerful and engaging story about a national scandal the nation prefers to deny or forget.
