Plot

edit

The life of Sekar, a successful doctor with a peaceful life because she has a small, happy family. She lives in an elite area of Jakarta with her husband, Ivan and their son, Dennis. The marriage has also been running for 15 years without encountering any major problems. However, a complicated situation occurs when Sekar accidentally notices her husband's suspicious movements. This suspicion sparked a big problem that Sekar had never imagined before. She has to face a dilemma full of problems because Ivan is having an affair. Sekar's life, which was initially calm and perfect, is shattered in an instant due to her husband's affair with a young socialite named Bella. Sekar finally tries to uncover Ivan's deception, which has so far been overlooked. However, that effort actually brought Sekar to a situation that was far from what he expected because it was full of betrayal. This condition triggers Sekar to do various unusual things that threaten her career, family, and even herself. Not only uncovering her husband's affair, Sekar also has to strategize to deal with the traitors around him.
