Living alone with her strict father, Yasmine is a free-spirited girl. When her father tells her she's been refused a school loan and must study far away, she takes the news very poorly. Yasmine joins the humble silat club at her college, directed by an eccentric academic with a Bruce Lee obsession. Yasmine undertakes her training in secrecy, because her father harbours an unexplained contempt for the sport and forbids her involvement. As the first round of the competition approaches, Yasmine and her team desperately seek out a new teacher. The series of events soon teaches Yasmine why her father wants nothing to do with silat.
