Indonesia is the most populous Muslim country, home to 207 million Muslims - 36 million more than Pakistan. After the downfall of the new order in Indonesia, the government started to apply autonomy in each province. Since then, each province was allowed to make its own rules for their area. Some provinces and districts then adopted Syariah rules. This is the documentary about two Muslim students who study in a Catholic school. They share their naive thoughts and worry about the Islamic Defender Front, which often enacts violence, and Syariah rules which are carried out by force in some provinces and districts.
