Father came back with me.


It has been very hard. Painful.

I lost my husband and my child.

Your husband too!

What are you doing now?

I'm a dancer.

It's great.

And you?

I didn't want to cause my

husband's family anymore troubles.

So I left them and I'm working

in a company.

She's an executive secretary.

I'd like to leave the factory

to work somewhere else.

Where do you live?

In a flat near Tengejaya.

Can I live with you?

I'm living with friends.

We're four in one room.

We never thought we would

meet like that.

It's true.

But you, you're still luckier.


You had a happy youth.

You were married.

We, the youth,

won't be able to be happy anymore.

It's necessarily true.

Your clothes are very nice.

Where do they come from?

I had them made here.

It must be expensive.


I haven't finished

paying for them yet.

What if I became a dancer?

Don't be ridiculous.


A visit?

Come in.

He's our boss.

She's my sister I was looking for.

We met by chance.

Like in a dream.

I'm happy for you.

Your sister talked to me about you.

I was worried.

Thank you.

It must have been hard.

If only I could dance...

My clothes aren't so nice.

It's time to go back.

I want to stay.

Your mother won't be happy

if you come back late.

It's wonderful.


Don't use my cosmetics.


Skinflint yourself!

Why don't you buy some?

I need of this to work.

I don't earn a lot of money.


An executive secretary?

Do you have another

contract with him?

Don't be ridiculous.

You should take advantage of it.

It's not my boss' type.

The boat arrives tonight.

We must prepare 3 million.

I'm counting on you.

We'll get caught.

You're my secretary.


Do you want me to buy you something?

Do you really care about me?
