Derrière la moustiquaire
(Behind the mosquito net)

by Teguh KARYA

A young couple, Hasan and Nurlela, would like to live alone, but for economic reasons they are obliged to live with her family. Tensions run high in the household: Nurlela’s father-in-law constantly criticises him and discredits him in his wife’s eyes in favour of her brother-in-law Buku. As if that wasn’t enough, Nurlela loses her job and becomes a taxi driver to make ends meet. Relations between the couple turn sour when her father-in-law suspects Nurlela of having an affair with another woman, and asks her to divorce him.
