As if in preparation to her death, Karina organises photographs and auctions an important artwork. She tells of her relationship with the men in her life: her distant father, her ex-husband, and German artist Walter Spies, who influenced Indonesian art in the 20’s. She says she saw Water drawing this artwork and this brings fascinating memories of a childhood in Java.
