MD Raya was village chief of Waiha for 32 years, exactly as long as Soeharto, Indonesia's notorious dictator. But he is not only famous for that. He is also famous for having 12 wives. Used to living an excessive life for many years, now he has to change. Since he had to stop being village chief because of old age, his wealth decreases...excessively. How does he survive his old age?
