A rare opportunity to dive deep into the world of Orgen Tunggal – a subculture that began in the early 1990s in Indonesia and underwent a significant change with the introduction of house music in 2002. The performance relies on an organ accompaniment that can be programmed playing all sorts of song rearrangements and serves as a significant source of entertainment in the countryside. The documentary narrates the story of Mirwan, a well-known organ arranger or ranger as they are popularly called. Through Mirwan's daily activities, one gets a glimpse of the dynamics of organ group life with all the challenges be it religious, social or political.
