    • Siti (convincingly portrayed by the as-yet-unknown actress Sekar Sari) is a young mother, married to a fisherman who has been paralysed in a boating accident. The boat was paid for with borrowed money and now the young family, including mother-in-law, is without work and income.
      The untiring Siti makes the best of it. During the day she sells snacks (jingking crackers) on the beach and at night she sells herself in an illegal karaoke bar. During her work in the karaoke bar, Siti gets to know a policeman. This makes her life even more complicated.
