This series of interviews and interactions follows the young adult service groups that exist in each village on the island of Bali known as the Muda-Mudi. These individuals are charged with tasks like acting as staff for religious ceremonies, helping with physical labor around the village, and most importantly, learning the responsibilities and expectations of a Balinese adult from the time they leave school until they are married. In addition to this, they also participate in playing gamelan, dancing, soccer kite flying, and many other recreational activities that are integral to Balinese culture.
