Film Synopsis:

Marriage has been a constant matter, for human beings of and time and age. No crisis, not even war, can stop people from getting married. Nokas is no different. This young man of 27 years old from East Nusa Tenggara, is very much keen on marrying his beloved, Ci, a pretty young woman who works in a chicken farm.

It is not so simple to marry in East Nusa Tenggara. Men are obliged to offer a significant dowry to the bride’s family. The sum of the dowry is often an immense burden for the groom-to-be. There are times when this tradition has also reduced the meaning of marriage into a business transaction.

Through an observational approach, this film follows Nokas’s struggle to get the dowry so he can finally be married to the love of his life.
