This is a story of Lana. Her memories started 20 years ago, when her father abandoned her in the zoo. For 20 years, she was raised by animal trainers who also lived at the zoo. The sound of the Hippo's steps, the flapping of the Elephant's ears, the strange, flute-like sound of the Giraffe; the zoo is the only world she knows. Over time, Lana forgets her father. One day, a handsome boy, comes to the zoo. He is a charming street magician with many tricks, and Lana falls in love. She leaves the trainers and the zoo to wander the streets of Jakarta with her magician. She becomes his assistant, selling medicine and performing magic. One day, the Magician disappears while performing his magic and Lana is left alone. Lana is sold to the Planet Spa and works as a masseuse ‘with benefits.' Her customers love her, but Lana is miserable - longing for the magician and the animal trainers at the zoo. Lana escapes the spa and returns to the zoo, but when she arrives, no one else is there. She finds herself alone once again in the zoo - the sound of the Hippo's steps, the flapping of the Elephant's ears, the strange, flute-like sound of the Giraffe.
