Sequel: Another accident, another woman, this one from Malaysia, but despite some initial misgivings there is no repeat. Meanwhile Rini has written a book and been invited to Budapest. We learn that Rini is at stage 4 cancer and wants Mei to fill her space. It turns out Mei is also in Hungary (partly to escape her guilt feelings). She finally has found a worthy man, Rini's doctor, Dr. Syariet. Pras has felt it would be most ethical to divorce Mei, but Rini doesn't want that feeling Mei is the most logical replacement--at the last moment Rini seems to have caught on to Mei's new interest--Mei at first berated the doctor for not doing everything possible as he explained she refused all this strategies
Suicide is a very grave sin and two of the characters had seen a parent commit it and Mei had attempted it herself. Pras felt obligated to do whatever he could to prevent it and then he felt the need to keep his word.
Forgiveness is an easy thing to talk about, but can be very difficult. The key people are Rini and her mother. Her mother feels forgiveness helps heals wounds.
What makes a movie go smoothly is the cast and crew.

At this point I am unsure how to see the final film, but suspect it might become available thru the Disney streaming. There is already a moral dilemma lined up. A reminder that time is running out for viewing on Netflix, January.
