Marriage is timeless. Even in time of war, people get married. It is no different with Nokas, a 27-year-old man who wishes to marry his beloved Ci, a beautiful girl working in chicken farm in Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara. It isn’t easy to marry a Timor’s girl. The soon-to-be groom needs to prepare certain amount of dowry to the girl’s parents and family. No exact amount is ever mentioned, but often it is quite huge. The tradition might have reminded us of a trade. With an observational approach, this film follows the effort of young Nokas as he tries to make his marriage happens.
