Several teachers try and fail. Eventually, a young teacher, Utari, is able to conquer them slowly. One day the children disturb Surya’s future wife. She suspects that Utari is behind it all, so she is fired. Utari goes home, heartbroken. The children are gloomy and the youngest one gets sick. Surya approaches the teacher to work again for them. Utari refuses. Only when the children approach her does she relent and return to Surya’s house.
