“Riri Riza’s film, infused with his signature lyrical realism, is wise and humane as it deals with Athirah’s stoic efforts to keep herself and her family together”

Athirah's life is shattered when another woman enters her husband's life.

In a time and cultural background where polygamy is still widely accepted, Athirah struggles alone with the hurt and humiliation.

Meanwhile, Athirah’s eldest son, Ucu, has to go through his teenage years with uncertainty.

While trying to understand what is going on in his family, Ucu falls in love with Ida.

His effort to approach Ida isn’t easy and Ucu’s frustration deepens when he discovers that his mother is pregnant again.
