Duka is now a mother with a two-year-old daughter and a six-month-old baby boy. Her life is dominated by caring for them and her husband, Sago. Although Sago and Duka seem to have an affectionate marriage, he beats her when provoked. Like every Hamar woman, she accepts this behavior for she believes it is a man's way of loving.
The film witnesses Sago's cousin's ceremonial initation into manhood. At the ceremony, Duka and the other women sing and dance themselves into a frenzy before being ritually whipped until their backs bleed. As they return home, Sago and Duka talk about their hopes for their children. Later, we see Sago and Duka's reaction to seeing television for the first time, as they watch the earlier film of their courting days.
