Tragedi Bintaro is an Indonesian drama tragedy film produced in 1989 and directed by Buce Malawau. This film starred, among others, Roldiah Matulessy, Ferry Octora, and Lia Chaidir. This film is based on the true story of a victim of 1987 Bintaro train crash on October 19, 1987.


Juned (Fery Octora) lives with his grandmother, Minah (Roldiah Matulessy) and his four siblings in a crowded village in Jakarta. Juned's parents have separated due to a mismatch. Minah's grandmother takes care of five grandchildren at once so that Minah's grandmother does anything to make a living, from being a masseuse to a clothes washer, even though sometimes the results of her laundry are not clean. Even though his parents are not divorced, they are separated. Lena (Lia Chaidir), Juned's mother works in a convection that occasionally comes to her grandmother's house, while her father Efendi (Asrul Zulmy) works in a workshop. Due to the selfishness of his parents, Juned and his siblings became victims.

The scene opens with Juned and his friends walking down the railroad tracks while discussing the issue of the newspaper "Sinar Harapan" 'which will be in bredel. Like children, Fendi's children used to joke and fight with their fellow brothers and sisters. Mulyadi, Juned's brother, for example, was often guilty of understanding Juned. Meanwhile, although Juned is the second child, he has a high responsibility. He sells newspapers. Little by little Juned saved the proceeds from selling his newspapers in a piggy bank.

Meanwhile, at school Mulyadi was not allowed to enter class because he was in arrears of school fees for 4 months, seeing that Juned told Mulyadi to ask his father for money, but his father did not give him money on the grounds that he had no money, even told Mulyadi not to come back . Juned, who was smart, finally met his father at the garage to ask for money, but was not given the reason that he was not paid yet, so Juned finally sulked and ran away from his father. His father chased him and finally gave him money, which turned out to be for his brother Mulyadi, who had not paid his school fees. Knowing that Minah's grandmother became annoyed at Juned, because she thought it was her grandmother's orders.

Feeling that her life is getting more and more difficult in Jakarta, Grandma Minah invited her grandchildren to move to the village. Minah's grandmother would take her grandchildren to go first while Juned's mother was told to follow later. Meanwhile, at the intersection where Juned was selling newspapers, his friend told him that his father was eating at a restaurant with a woman. Juned, in a funny style, approached his father and immediately asked for money, seeing that Juned thought that it was his father's girlfriend even though he was in a funny style, but the words Juned said hit his father. As soon as he arrived at Minah's grandmother's house, Juned immediately told his grandmother that he had met his father with a woman without knowing that his mother was in pain. Knowing that his mother was sick, Juned opened the piggy bank and told his grandmother to take his mother for treatment.

That night Juned went to contract his father to tell him that he and his grandmother would move to the village so that he wouldn't bother his father anymore. Juned also asked his father for compensation because Juned's money that was saved was used up for his mother's medical treatment, but it was not immediately replaced.

Once upon a time, Efendi took his children for a vacation to Fantasy World and had fun, but without Juned's presence. Once home from traveling, Efendi distributed gifts to his children, as well as money for grandmothers. Efendi's gift for Juned was not given because Juned was not home yet, so Efendi brought back the gift to be kept and given directly to Juned.

Grandmother Minah's preparation to return to the village from day to day is always being prepared. Likewise Juned, who always tells Memet, his friend who sells newspapers. According to the plan, her mother would come home later while Minah's grandmother came home first with her grandson. The children used the gifts their father had given them to go home, except for Juned, whose gifts had not been given, so Juned was irritable. Mulyadi tried to calm him down.

As soon as the dawn came, Minah's grandmother are ready to go to the station after previously saying goodbye to the owner of the landlord Hajj. Efendi followed Grandma Minah's rented house and only met Pak Haji because the grandmother and the children had left for the station. Finally, driving his car, Efendi followed to the station. Meanwhile, in the train carriage, Juned was still grumpy because his father had not given him a gift. Juned was waiting for his father who didn't come until finally Juned was forced to take the train halfway.

As soon as the train slowed down, Efendi had reached the station and immediately caught up with the children to give Juned gifts through the window. However, the train that had been running and the size of the package given could not enter through the window, so Juned finally did not accept the gift. Juned cried because he couldn't accept the gift.

In the middle of the trip at km ± 18.75 from the opposite direction, another train appeared loaded with passengers on the same rail. Finally there was a deadly collision between two trains that caused casualties. Juned, who was pinched, shouted for his grandmother, while Mulyadi tried to call out his father. Minah's grandmother's entire family died in the deadly accident, only Juned remained. Hysterical cries and screams colored the deadly accident, blood everywhere.

Meanwhile, Efendi finally found out about the accident after a call and went straight to the hospital to see the body of his family. Juned's pinched existence was finally released, and in the hospital the two of Juned's parents were finally united by him. Juned told his parents to make up.

At the end of the story, the real Juned appears on the railroad tracks wearing a leg brace, because his left leg has to be amputated. Juned is one of the victims of the train crash in Bintaro. "I am Juned, one of the victims of the train crash in Bintaro, I am grateful for the story of our family being lifted to the white sail through this film, I hope there is a lesson for us all," said Juned's original words at the end of the story.
