Munin, a former political prisoner, runs a "magic" garage in Setiabudi, a central Jakarta community earmarked for redevelopment. A bustling innercity subculture, Setiabudi is the focus for a fascinating mix of Jakartans, ranging from the elite and expatriates fostering development through to people living on the streets whose very survival it most directly affects. As he repairs one of his landlord's cars, spirit warnings suggest to Munin that something is in the air. Could it be the land clearance or is it something more sinister? But he cannot unravel the mystery alone.
