Love for Sale

Can you put a price tag on love? This love drama, written and directed by Andibachtiar Yusuf, is all about this intriguing question. With nuance and enough humour, he tells a story of "bought love", but not like you would expect.

41-year-old incorrigible bachelor Richard Widjaja spends most of his time either watching soccer with friends in a café or staying home alone with his turtle. When one of his friends announces his upcoming wedding, he challenges Richard to bring along a date to the happy occasion. Not wanting to lose face, Richard starts looking for a suitable candidate, ultimately landing at the online platform Love Incorporated, which can supply him with a girlfriend, for a price of course. Thus he meets Arini Kusuma, a nice girl who even knows her soccer. The contract turns out to be valid for 45 days. Richard falls in love eventually and even starts thinking of marrying Arini.
