Aisyah: Biarkan Kami Bersaudara (2016)

Aisyah just graduates. She lives in Ciwidey, West Java, a religious village near a cool tea plantation, with her mother and younger brother. Her father had died a few years ago. She wants to be a teacher. One day, she gets a call from the foundation where she enrolled: she gets her wish fulfilled at the location that she never knows: Derok hamlet, North Middle Timor District.

From the beginning she feels like a “foreigner”. The local people mistake her as Sister Maria, just because she wears a veil like a sister. The people is expecting the arrival of Sister Maria as a teacher in the village. This ssolated village is without electricity and cellular signals. In the long dry season the water is hard to get.

The new environment, the different tradition and religion make Asyah giddy. Fortunately there is Pedro (Arie Kriting) who makes the problems easy. She must face the hatred of one of his student, Lordis Defam. Through the hamlet head, she understand that she is a Muslim who is considered an enemy by Lordis Defan who is a catholic.
