World Premiere


Marsiti (15) a girl who has a dream to win buffalo race. She was trained by her late father and inherited two buffalos. Her mom wanted to sell the buffalos to Haji Roni, his father competitor. Marsiti was angry and stole the buffalos with the help of her two best friends, Ponidi (18) and Marjuki (17). They took the buffalos to Sumber Agung where the race was big and the price was high. 


The problem is, there is no woman rides the buffalos on the race before. Not in Marsiti’s village, not in Sumber Agung nor any other place in the world. 

She was rejected by the race organizers that was managed by Haji Roni, her father nemesis but the buffalos were allowed to race as long as she’s not the rider. Marsiti was begging Ponidi to ride her buffalos even though she knew Ponidi was too heavy to win the race. She has other plan to hijack the buffalos and to prove to the people that she can ride the buffalos.
