In the Absence of the Sun takes place over one evening in Jakarta telling three stories connected by the hotel that they end up staying at. The chief story shows two young women who used to be best friends until one moved over to the states and are now having an awkward catch up evening. The second story shows a young woman going out on a date with an unattractive slob who after being insulted by said slob heads out into the night and ends up getting it on with a waiter from the bar she was at. The third part has a widow tracking down her late husband’s mistress at the lounge bar she sings at.
