Synopsis
Local superstition dictates that if a girl turns down more than two proposals it can bring bad luck. For 16-year-old Yuni, however, marriage isn’t a blessing, but an obstacle standing between her and a university education. Andini’s drama presents a portrait of present day Indonesia as a grossly unbalanced society, in which young women hold no agency or control over their future, but who must undergo mandatory virginity tests at school before being married off to strange men often many years their senior. Screening with Terikat (10min). Total: 105min.
