is an epic film from Indonesia, mixing action/adventure with horror and
a deadly monster. The story begins with the discovery of a mammoth structure
- the oldest pyramid in the world - 'hiding-in-plain-site' inside the
mountains of West Java, Indonesia. The government then appoints archaeologist
Arni Kumalasari (Julie Estelle), to head the investigation team. Unfortunately,
after the research starts, a series of brutal deaths disrupt the mission.
At first, Arni staunchly refuses to believe the tragedies could be related
to the occult world. But then when it become obvious that a mythical creature
is guarding the pyramid, she begins to look for assistance from people
who have a grasp of the supernatural.
