This is a movie about polygamy in modern Indonesia, the largest Moslem country in the world. It is a film about three women from three different social classes and ethnic backgrounds, conveying their passages in dealing with polygamy: sharing a husband’s love and attention with several other women. The film reveals their troubles and internal conflicts. In their course of finding the answers to their problems, sometimes they meet with each other without even realizing that they share a similar story.


 

 

 Indonesia, the largest country consisting of islands in Southeast Asia, has the 4th largest population in the world with 300 races and tribes, 88% of whom are Islamic. This film shares terrible news of the area where the earthquake and tidal waves occurred and shows characters who pass each other by with indifference at an obstetrician’s office, a taxi, and a Chinese restaurant. Salma, Siti and Ming are different in terms of social status, race, religion, ethnicity, age and sexual preference, but they have the same concerns about the conflict caused by polygamy in Indonesia which allows up to four wives for one man. Nevertheless, it provides a rather interesting ending about love and shows the changing contemporary woman and man within the system in this country. That does not mean that this film supports monogamy. It seems that polygamy, where wives share a husband, is being replaced by another type of love which shares other things in wide variety of ways! (SIM Hye-kyong)
