SYNOPSIS

A traditional wedding procession walks along a narrow street towards the home of the bride. Guests and family members are waiting inside the home on this big day, as they listen to prayers from the loudspeakers. The bride, Putri, is getting ready inside her bedroom while her mother is helping with the final touches of her hair and makeup. Tender and frank conversations about marriage are shared between mother and daughter in that intimate space, before Putri leaves to begin a new life with her husband.

collapse

With perceptive observations made on traditions and the roles of men and women in society, Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue is a forward-looking take on relationships, presented with wry humour.
