In 1991, the Indonesian military opened fire on East Timorese protestors in Dili. In Jakarta a cover-up began immediately. The Indonesian mass media was cautioned to tow the official line. Seno Gumira Ajidarma, editor of Jakarta Jakarta at the time, refused to do so and was released from his position. Unable to let his fellow Indonesians know about the facts of this "incident," Seno transformed documentary evidence into semi-fictional form and published it as novel. This novel is a triptych made up of three series of panels.
