    • Synopsis
    • Sumanto’s act of violence of disassembling graveyards and eating human flesh has shocked everyone. The media is competing in conveying the issue. Lili Wijaya a young reporter is asked to interview Sumanto. Although she at first refuses, she has no choice. In a very small prison cell, Lili began through Sumanto’s life. The fact is Sumanto had been showing strange symptoms since his early years,, he ate his friend’s grasshopper! This strange behavior persisted until adulthood. Sumanto’s innocent behavior made him accept people’s teachings easily. His teacher’s advice and his friend’s empty talk were unconsciously absorbed by Sumanto. All these teachings were channeled when he unintentionally killed a mule who was about to steal his money. With no guilty feeling, Sumanto ate the dead body with the intention of giving honour to it. This was the beginning of Sumanto’s horror journey. Beginning with the first dead body, in the next few years he ate other dead bodies.
      Motivated by the will of making a good writing, Lili interviewed Sumanto’s family as well. She wanted to go through Sumanto’s life throughly. Lili didn’t know that her action had made someone restless. She was unaware that someone was watching her, someone who is keeping track on her steps and is ready to take action incase Lili steps too deep into revealing who Sumanto really is and the people involved in misleading him. Someone who is actually more dangerous then Sumanto...
