The harsh competition of life has spared the defeated in Tirang Village. They are plagued by pessimism and overwhelmed with fear, especially toward Darso, the rich boss who has given them “life”. Pakel, the psychopantic scholar in Darso’s inner circle deviously makes the villagers mentally stunted. The situation makes it easier for him to reap more profits. Specks of optimism and hope to break free from the powerless life are present in Turah and Jadag. Incidents occur, encouraging Turah and Jadag to fight the acute fear and escape from the cunning narrative. This is every effort made by them, as the people of Tirang Village, to no longer be the human failure, the remnants.
