An undergraduate, Wati, is dating a famous rock star called Awie. They were childhood sweethearts with their parents’ blessings. Their relationship was well accepted except for one person, Azman – Wati’s brother. Then Ziana, a nightclub singer, falls for Awie and tries to tempt him away.

MUBI's take
