The charismatic god-king Sukarno has brought Indonesia to the edge of chaos -- to an abortive revolution that will leave half a million dead. Working at the eye of the storm are television correspondent Guy Hamilton and his eccentric dwarf cameraman Billy Kwan. As the Indonesian shadow play erupts into terrible reality, a complex personal tragedy of love, obsession and betrayal comes to its climax.
