At a special needs boarding school, the students are like any other teenagers: outside of their visual limitations, they attend classes, pursue artistic endeavours, and occupy their minds with love and dreams.
Beautiful Fitri, 20 years old, is blind and has no shortage of male attention. She falls in love with a doctor at the school's swimming pool who turns out to be, unbeknownst to her, a hearing-impaired punk rocker who is masquerading as a doctor. Her classmate Diana, 17 years old, is a myopic whose beauty-worshipping mother is obsessed with making her the perfect girl. While patiently awaiting signs of womanhood, she begins to have feelings for a new student. Meanwhile, Maya, blind since birth, aspires to be an actress and performer.
What They Don't Talk About When They Talk About Love, dir. Mouly Surya, Indonesia 2013, 101 mins, cert. 12, Indonesian with English Subtitles
