Inspired by the life of celebrated dancer Rianto, this coming-of-age story explores gender and sexuality against the political unrest of ’80s and ’90s Indonesia. In poverty-stricken Java, pre-teen Juno is abandoned by his father, a survivor of political violence. Forced to be his own mother and father, he rediscovers family within a Lengger Lanang troupe. Featuring male dancers in female roles, their graceful, sensual performances awaken Juno to the fluidity of gender and the body’s beautiful possibilities. However, the persistence of destructive traditional masculinity leads to sexual and political trauma, and he is forced on the road. But as he moves toward adulthood, Juno encounters other bodies―beautiful and bruised, young and old―whose tenderness and tragic histories will bring him to realize: “My body is my home.”
