Indonésie, carrefour de tous les silences possibles et imaginables. Victime du dogme et du fanatisme, Ibu Pertiwi, la "Déesse de la fertilité" a vu sa muse s'estomper dans la peur et la surdité. Les oenophiles survivants tendent en vain leur coupe d'espoir à la multitude gavée de force par le vide et le bruit.
