This is a story about the most famous Indonesian heroine, Kartini.
In early 1900, when Indonesia was still a colony of the Netherlands, Java was ruled by the Indonesian royal family under Dutch supervision. Women weren't allowed to get higher education, even with royal blood. Women in Javanese culture had only one purpose - to be a bride for a man with royal blood.
Kartini grew up to fight this caste system and fight for the right for everyone to get an education regardless of their social status or gender. This is Kartini's emotional journey, where she defies her own family, her own culture and she has to fight for a change in rules and tradition that are considered sacred in Java.
