Yono, or Mbah Jhiwo (ancient soul), a Kawah Ijen sulphur miner, sees his routine radically altered the moment his wife goes away. Trapped like Sisyphus into an eternal return, Yono will face similar events that mutate in appearance as his beliefs move from animism, to Islam and capitalism. An ethno-fiction that explores otherness and questions the myth of progress in the neocolonial reality of the South Seas.
