Yuni is a teenage girl, smart, with big dreams of attending university, but raised in a culture where it is natural for a woman to form a family instead of being educated. Two men whom she barely knows ask to marry her. She rejects their proposals arousing gossip about a myth, that a woman who rejects three proposals will never get married. The pressure is increasing when a third man is asking for her hand, and Yuni is forced to choose between the myth of a final chance of marriage, and her dream of future happiness.
