A death in the family is always a sorrowful occasion, but this funeral is tinged by a touch of fear.
Siti had died at childbirth, and ancient folklore tells of the pontianak, a vengeful spirit born from the suffering of a woman denied her child.
Kharis dismisses it as superstition, but his daughter’s increasingly disturbed behaviour drives him to consult a spirit medium.
Through the medium, he witnesses the horror he had wrought upon Siti’s psyche — betrayal, jealousy, and pain brought about by his unfaithfulness. His dead wife has more reason than most to reach out from the afterlife for revenge.
