"Mata Hati" ("Eye of the Heart") is a documentary film that delves into the world of inclusive education in Indonesia, focusing on blind students in North Sumatra. Centered around YAPENTRA, a boarding school for the visually impaired in Tanjung Morawa, the film introduces students who've come from distant places, such as the island of Nias, and have faced blindness since a young age.

On the other side there are alumni of the same boarding school, who have returned as educators to give back to the community as teachers to the current students. As adults who have overcome their own challenges as blind individuals, they serve as a mentors and role models for the younger students, showing them that anything is possible with hard work and determination.

Through the points of view of students and alumni of YAPENTRA, "Mata Hati" explores the transformative power of education and the importance of community in helping individuals to reach their full potential. The film follows their journey as they navigate the challenges and triumphs of life at the boarding school, and ultimately, emerge stronger and more confident in their abilities to shape their own future.
