The film covers the limited nationalist resistance to Dutch colonial rule in the 1930s. A musician, played by Alex Komang, angered by the political murder of one of his friends, decides to murder a Dutch official. However, on falling in love with the sister (played by Jenny Rachman) of the murdered friend, he begins to wonder if vengeance is the right course.[1][2]


Doea Tanda Mata was a great success at the box office in Indonesia, winning a number of Citra Awards (Indonesian Oscars).[1]
