Science Around Us

Science Around Us

Arif Abdillah
After finding out that his father was admitted into hospital and refuses medical treatment in Indonesia, Budi has to convince his father to take the treatment while trying to clean up his Airbnb-apartment after a wild party in The Netherlands.
After working as a junior associate lawyer for two years, being part of defendant team in four death penalty cases in Indonesia and finished my Master in Human Rights and Public International Law, I boxed my thick law books, donated my suits and decided to tell story instead.
