The employees of Uma de Raffa, a nearly bankrupt resort, are getting anxious. They put a lot of hope, knowing that they are expecting a guest who is told to be the resort investor. The investor came with his mistress, and asked Jho, the lead employee, to put some drug on his mistress’s drink. Who knows that later, the mistress switched the drink that caused him to die by heart attack. Turns out the mistress reveals the mystery of how the village is getting abandoned by its villagers. Cornered by the situation, the employee turns the myth, reality, and hope into their way out.
