A song from Anna Kendrick – Cups (Pitch Perfect’s “When I’m Gone”)



There are a group of college students talking about farewell party after the class finished because one of the members, Karin got a scholarship to Germany. A group named CUPS consists of 5 girls who are studying at second year psychology in a well-known university. Karin is the prettiest and the smartest among others. She is not coming to the class today. That is why the rest of group members decide to discuss and prepare a special moment for Karin’s last time together with CUPS in Indonesia.

Karin is absent because of visa interview in Germany Embassy. Knowing that she passed the scholarship program, Karin is very happy and really excited to go to Germany. She applied for a transfer student in one year, so that after come back, she only need make the final thesis for her study. This is what Karin has dreamed since graduated from high school. By having a strong belief and giving a big effort, she can show to the world that she got what she wants. Karin’s family and friends are always proud of her and keep supporting all the time.
