SYNOPSIS

Haqim’s life is at a standstill, having lost his girlfriend to his best pal. A chance encounter with the sensual Japanese girl Midori, rekindles his faith in love. Their growing passion takes on a sinister twist, when strange incidents befall those close to him. This forces Haqim to grapple with the truth that Midori’s love comes at a deadly price. Meaning ‘soul’ in Japanese, KONPAKU challenges the concept of love, within the confines of one’s faith and sexuality.

Kehilangan pacar karena sahabatnya, hidup Haqim serasa terhenti. Namun, sebuah pertemuan dengan wanita Jepang sensual bernama Midori mengembalikan keyakinannya akan cinta. Namun, gairah mereka berubah menjadi menyeramkan ketika insiden-insiden aneh menimpa mereka yang dekat dengan Haqim. Hal ini memaksa Haqim untuk menghadapi realita bahwa cinta Midori datang tidak tanpa harga yang mematikan. Diartikan sebagai ‘jiwa’ di bahasa Jepang, KONPAKU menantang konsep cinta di dalam batas-batas kepercayaan dan seksualitas.
