"Living by your passion, hard work, connection, timing seem so easy compared to being nice to someone you take for granted. That's why I decided to tell this story: a story of a mother and daughter; with my mom as the actress." S. Simanjuntak.
Demi Ucok is a refreshing comedy with two divergent views on happiness.
