Synopsis: This film tells the story of three women in three regions in Indonesia redefining their destiny. SUTRINGAH, is the wife of a palm sugar tapper from Banyumas. As the family of a sugar palm tapper, her life continues to dwindle away because of economic difficulties and this is exacerbated when her husband is totally paralyzed due to an accident when tapping. Sutringah is faced with the process of redefining her role as a woman, a wife and a breadwinner. YATI, a woman with a disability, has worked all her life in her family's business involving ‘lurik’ fabric artisans in Klaten, Central Java. Yati then redefines her destiny when her idealism comes into conflict with her father’s and also when her existential need within her cries out for creative realisation. Yati decides to work in a garment factory to get what she dreamed of. MARIA, a widow from the village of Kefa in East Nusa Tenggara along with other widows redefine their destiny as women wanting to pass along their weaving tradition to the youth around them - even when their initiative collides with customs that do not favour them.
