Political thriller in which a trucker on the run becomes entangled with an organisation that supplied arms to the rebels during the Indonesian war of independence. This runs parallel to a complex love story about a woman who is disappointed in life. She works as a call girl in a nightclub and is played by Monique van de Ven. She was awarded a Golden Calf for her role.
