    • Synopsis
    • FITRI, a 20 year old high school student at a Special School for the Visually Impaired, falls in love with a Ghost Doctor who resides at the therapy swimming pool at the school's backyard. She writes him, tells him her sad stories and makes love to him on Thursday night by the pool. Unknown to her, behind the medical attire, a hearing impaired boy, EDO, is the one who is deceiving and falling for her. If both of them can see and hear, no communication barrier whatsoever, maybe they would fall in love a long time ago and their love will lose its magic one day at a tiny rented room with raindrops dripping from the leaked roof.
      DIANA, a fellow student with low vision, is the only daughter of RIMA, of whom adores beauty. If only DIANA has a normal sight, she'll be the star of a local ballet school. In both realities, she hasn't had her period at 17 years old. As a low vision student, she thinks she falls in love with a new boy in the Special School for the Visually Impaired, named ANDHIKA. She also thinks that he feels the same and when he finally kisses her, her first period comes along. If only Andhika never have had lost both of his eye balls, he might have still been together with GADIS, his long time girlfriend who liked to ride along his fast motorcycle.
