Island of Bali is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Asia. According to a record, around 5 million tourists from around the world visited the island for vacation in 2017. In 2004, when Putu Sayoga was 18 years old, he left his home village in Bali for study in Yogyakarta, more than 700 kilometers to the west. After 8 years, he went back to Bali and then started to work on a story about his village on and off until now. He sees documenting the disappearing rural life culture as a way to look back to his childhood memories.
