A multilingual cautionary tale that warns against the dangers of breaking young women’s hearts.
Two young lovers meet in Indonesia. SHE loves to make people feel loved, magical moments in the city, and nature. HE loves his mother, hair gel, and nature. Clearly, they have a connection — and feelings for each other. But can you have a connection without feelings? Or feelings without a connection?
A heart-to-heart in a charming café takes a surprising turn in this playful, experimental twist on the romantic-comedy genre. Featuring a bald, chubby, blue puppet named Pak Biru, AWAS: Karma is Real (You Heartless F***) is a multilingual cautionary tale — awas means “watch out!” in Indonesian — that warns against the dangers of breaking young women’s hearts.
