Sypnopsis
An engaged couple is lunching in a cafeteria, and we follow their conversation as they go into minute detail about what needs to be organized for the upcoming wedding. She stabs compulsively at the food on her plate as they discuss the dowry, and he waves around his hands. We learn that in Indonesia's culturally divided society, neither the preparations nor the wedding itself are simple. This is a glimpse into the life of a modern young people struggling with their parents' cultural legacy.
