Forbidden love descends into the realms of black magic

Since her teenage years, IRMA has fallen in love with her cousin, GALANG. Irma is willing to do anything for Galang’s love, even things involving black magic. IKHSAN, a shaman she visits, warns Irma to stay away from Galang, or he will be the death of her. But Irma is obsessed, and never really gets over her relationship with her cousin.

Twelve years later, Irma is now a widow, after her husband died, a man her mother forcefully chose for her. She lives with only her mother and younger sister, WULAN (28). Meanwhile, Galang is now married to a beautiful woman NISA. They are blessed with a daughter, SOFIA, and they live together with Galang’s sick mother. Although Galang is married with a daughter, his relationship with Irma is still on and off, up until he ultimately breaks off the relationship and tells Irma to stay away from him. Irma, in her fury, visits the shaman, Ikhsan again. Irma only asks for one thing; she wants to be the only woman in Galang’s life. After Irma gave Ikhsan something that belonged to Nisa, he chants a powerful spell, to send a jinn that will kill Nisa and her birth relatives in five nights.

Strange things start to happen in Galang and Nisa’s house, from possessions to mystical disturbances, even death. But unbeknownst to Irma, the threat starts to spread to her family, and even herself.

The visual horrors are captivating and disturbing, leaving a lasting impression on audience
