She journeys there with her friend Dini (Marissa Anita) only to find out that the locals want to kill her to in order to remove a curse that has tormented the village for years. Instead of escaping a hard life, Maya must come to terms with a mysterious, complicated past while fighting to stay alive.

The cast also includes Ario Bayu, Christine Hakim and Asmara Abigail. Joko Anwar directed.

The film is in Indonesian with English subtitles.
