No females remain in Guan's (Him Damsyik) family. Philip (Hengky Solaiman) is the only child of Guan. From Philip's two marriages, he has children named Martin (Verdi Solaiman) and Arman (Joe Taslim). Arman decides to leave the house to study in Australia. In Australia, Arman meets Sandra (Dominique Diyose) and they fall in love. Sandra gets pregnant (out of wedlock) and is kicked out of home. Armand returns home and takes Sandra with him to his own family. Their arrival is greeted with a thrown glass. Strange sounds follow in the middle of the night and a female figure appears dressed in ancient Chinese dress, along with voices telling her to get out of the house, constantly terrorize her. From the people who had contact with Guan's family, Sandra discovers that every woman who enters the Guan's family will get hurt. However, because of her love for Armand and their unborn child, Sandra insists on staying and looking for ways to stop the karma that exists in Guan family.

The arrival of Armand and Sandra is not greeted with happiness by Armand's grandfather, Guan.
