Set in 1970s rural areas, Jarno is a stage crew who’s working for a successful traditional theatre company that is well known for their roadshows from village to village. As a stage crew, Jarno is often mistreated and underestimated by Arjuna, the biggest star who’s also the owner of the company. Even so, Jarno is still obsessed with becoming a star just like Arjuna.
One day, Jarno got his opportunity to act on one of the shows. Unfortunately, Jarno’s performance is a complete failure, and it sparked a riot which caused him to be beaten by the villagers. After that incident, Jarno decided to leave the group and start traveling alone to pursue his career of becoming a stage star. During his travel, Jarno met Supri, an opportunist who’s interested in Jarno’s storytelling talent. Supri offered to work together to earn money by becoming a traveling horror storyteller. In each performance, Supri slowly realizes that all of Jarno's scary stories have come true.
As he becomes more successful Jarno slowly learns the origin of his powers, as well as learns about his dark past that he has long wanted to forget. However, Jarno's new mysterious power actually leads him to take revenge on anyone who has humiliated him in the past. Not only against individuals, Jarno's revenge also targets the sugar factory monopoly system which has undermined the small people for years and its savagery that has destroyed the Jarno family in the past.
