In the bustling streets and back alleys of Jakarta, a parallel world of bloodthirsty creatures from Indonesian mythology has lived alongside humans for generations. Taking on the appearance of humans themselves, the true identity of these "Demit" has been carefully concealed for centuries by a powerful family of mortals. The arrival of a mysterious supernatural event known only as the Gift will bring this hidden world to the surface. As the day of the Gift approaches, a young street artist named Sarah unexpectedly finds herself in the eye of the storm. Once the Demit realize who Sarah really is, and what she must do, humans and Demit are set on a collision course that could change the balance of their two worlds forever. Written by HBO Asia

Solid Start for Halfworlds
29 November 2015 | by nakamura-renaldoSee all my reviews

I don't have a lot of knowledge about HBO Asia, but if this is the first TV show from Indonesia, I'm a really proud Jakartan. Although without this, I'm still a proud Jakartan for many other reasons. Anyway... Let's talk about Halfworlds.

Regardless of the pictures, it's good. It has a unique quality of Jakarta. The background story about the Demit and everything else is really interesting. I was quite fascinated when I heard the stories because from what I know, the story about these Demits are altered.

The length of the pilot is only 30 minutes, which kind of disappointing for me. I expected 15 minutes longer. But in only 30 minutes, it's packed well. A solid start, I must say.

Again, applause for Joko Anwar, my favorite director in Indonesia. Hoping the next episode would be better. I'm excited to see where the story goes, because after watching the pilot I still have no idea what's going on.
