An elderly widow finds herself alone and lonely after the departure of her maid. Concerned for her wellbeing, her daughter and son-in-law hire a live-in helper – a young boy named Abi – to keep her company. The widow and Abi slowly develop an affectionate bond.
Director Teddy Soeriaatmadja does not shy away from taking on themes of sexuality in his film, provoking thought and discomfiture with a headlong approach into the affair that ensues, hammering home the point that loneliness and a need for love are universal human conditions.

About A Woman is the last installment of a trilogy, following Lovely Man (2011) and Something In The Way(2013), which explores hypocrisy in Indonesian society.
