Marlina (Marsha Timothy), the heroine of this powerful, provocative, and visually stunning Indonesian take on the "feminist western" sub-genre, is a young widow living alone in a remote farmhouse with the embalmed corpse of her husband. When a band of robbers, entitled by centuries of male domination, arrive to steal her livestock, seize her possessions, and rape her, Marlina thinks fast and acts even faster — and the next day sees her hitting the road on a journey of empowerment and redemption, a sabre in one hand and a severed head in the other.
