the video is divided into 4 parts;
Part 1 - Dynamic, "Jakarta-on-the-go" - as the opening of the video.
Part 2 - Light and Building (Timelapse Journey through Jakarta), telling the stories of modernisation of Jakarta, the city that never "sleeps", showered with neon lights.
Part 3 - Playground, an unforgettable place for the children of Jakarta,used to be the land for children during the salad days but now, getting cramped due to modernisation process which leads to extinction.
Part 4 - Human, the faces of Jakarta, caught in their daily routines - "bare and stripped", without pretense.
