This module is about an initial stage to digitalize culture and traditions of Timor island with the aims to bring the life complexity encountered by Atoin Meto (or commonly known as Timorese) into the global viewers through a drama depicting one of most pressing issues faced by theTimor island, i.e. ‘the drought’ and how local tradition was made at last to solve the persistent problem of water lacking, ‘the drop of hope’. The drama was performed in three (3) different languages, i.e. English, Kupang Malay creole, and Uab Meto or known as the language of the Timorese.
