Position Among the Stars

.

Indonesia has the fourth most populous country and the largest Muslim population in the world. Grandmother Rumidjah, a confessed Christian, has left the bustle of Jakarta to live with her friend Tumisa in the countryside. Her son Bakti, who has converted to Islam, takes care of her grandchild Tari. Bringing up Tari is hard for him, so Bakti brings his mother back to town. The Sjamsuddin family is in many ways a microcosm of the most important issues of life in Indonesia: corruption, religious conflict, gambling addiction, a generational gap and the growing chasm between rich and poor.
