Yuni is a teenage girl with a passion for the colour purple, a bunch of good friends and typical teenage views. Her loving family is more bound to tradition than she is. Yuni plans to stay single and get a college scholarship, but that goal gets out of sight when marriage proposals start to arrive. She wants to reject them all, but an old Indonesian myth says that a woman who rejects a marriage proposal three times will never marry again. Yuni’s grandmother therefore urges her not to refuse the ‘blessing’ of a marriage proposal. With each passing day, at home and at school, Yuni sees her horizons closing in.

In YUNI, lead actress Arawinda Kirana makes her feature film debut. It is a mesmerising performance. Kirana convincingly portrays a teenager who is both hesitant and sure about what she desires from her future.
