Caroline Hendel is a young teacher living in Portland, Oregon. To advance her career, she has accepted a position with the French International School in Jakarta, Indonesia. She sees her move as a challenge, one she's confident she'll overcome. Caroline must find a place to live close to the French International School because Jakarta's impossibly congested traffic can delay a commute for hours. When she learns there are no apartments available, she has only one alternative. With a budget fit for a small apartment, Caroline now has to rent a house, buy furniture and perhaps find a roommate to share expenses. The pressures of time, budget and Jakarta's strange real estate culture raise tensions. The challenge Caroline hopes to win may be insurmountable. See what happens when House Hunters International arrives in Jakarta.
