Director: Sentot Sahid

Cousins Heru and Retno were born with a sixth sense. Heru sees spirits, while Rento merely feels their presence. Their common ‘gift’ draws them to each other from childhood, deepening their ties of blood and friendship. But as they grow older, their families become uneasy over their intimate friendship, while external pressures begin to strain their relationship. The deaths of Heru’s father and brother draw the two cousins back together, and they make a pact that if one of them were to die, he would visit the other and relate the whole experience. But when Heru chooses Rianti as his soul mate and life partner, the pact begins to grow ominous.
