Hasan (Ibnu JAMIL) and Nina (Raihaanun) are members of the sandwich generation. They have two precocious children to raise and also their respective mothers who are getting on in years. Following the death of Nina’s mother, they travel back to Hasan's home town to pick up his own (Tutie KIRANA) only to discover that she has Alzheimer's and that she refuses to leave the family home. Worse still, Nina is able to sense things from the supernatural world and she senses a mysterious presence infesting the house along with the idea that Hasan and his mother are hiding things from her.
The film’s biggest horror come from a variety of sources, such as the jump scares of “The Conjuring” (2013) and “Insidious” (2010) and the oppressive atmosphere of “Hereditary” (2018) but at its heart is a family drama filled with grief that leads to psychological horror as people who should be close to each other hide dark secrets.
