    Alisha (Ladya Cheryl) is a young woman with a traumatic background.

Alisha's pursuit of love pushes her to move in next door to Bari. Lives in the block of flats are like the mosaic of a small world. Alisha begins to get involved in the lives of other tenants in her own way. This is a story about the dark side of love. Of an obsession. Of a dream.

    I always try to place my camera in a place where, as an audience, you can observe it and you can actually become someone who is rather objective about what is happening.

After earning her BA in Media and Literature from Swinburne University, Melbourne, Surya obtained an MA in Film and Television from Bond University, Queensland.
