SYNOPSIS

Sonya is an old maid stuck in a town that long ceased to recognize her existence but only until one fateful morning when a mysterious corpse arrives at the footsteps of their family owned funeral shop. Bringing forth strange luck and fortune, Sonya instantly gets drawn to the corpse’s mystique, reinvigorating not only her life but also that of her father Mang Rudy. But luck would eventually dry up, provoking further distress back to Sonya’s life. She faces the reality that her existence is nothing more that of the corpse, at the tail end of its mortality staring life wither away.

Sonya adalah seorang pelayan tua yang terjebak di kota yang sudah lama melupakan eksistensinya. Namun, semua berubah ketika suatu pagi, sebuah mayat misterius tiba di depan toko pemakaman keluarga mereka. Membawa keberuntungan yang ganjil, Sonya langsung tertarik kepada mistik mayat tersebut, memberi energi kehidupan tidak hanya pada dirinya, namun juga ayahnya Mang Rudy. Namun, keberuntungan pun akhirnya akan sirna juga dan hal ini membuat Sonya frustasi. Ia pun menghadapi realita bahwa eksistensinya tak lebih dari sebuah mayat, dan Sonya pun berdiri di ujung kefanaannya menatap kehidupan yang perlahan pergi.
