SYNOPSIS

A renowned filmmaker receives a mysterious call from an old college mate in the middle of the night. Asandhimitta, whom he recalls as a large and voluptuous woman, asks him to make a film based on her life. She then confesses that she was recently involved in a triple homicide of three women and is taken into custody shortly afterwards. Intrigued, the filmmaker attempts to piece together her fragmented story for a film while Asandhimitta herself awaits her fate in a local prison.

Seorang pembuat film terkenal menerima sebuah telepon misterius dari seorang kawan kuliah lama pada tengah malam. Asandhimitta, yang ia ingat sebagai wanita bertubuh besar dan menggairahkan, memintanya untuk membuat film yang didasarkan oleh kisah hidupnya. Kemudian, ia mengaku bahwa baru-baru ini ia terlibat dalam tiga pembunuhan wanita dan dibui segera setelah itu. Merasa tertarik, akhirnya sang pembuat film mencoba untuk merangkai cerita Asandhimitta yang terpecah-pecah sementara Asandhimitta menunggu nasibnya di penjara.
