About a traveler who wants to plant a rose seed on the lips of a woman beneath the Lempuyangan Bridge. A dragon hidden in the woman’s mouth then becomes a witness to their toxic relationship with her lover. A banana growing on the table, a man infatuated with cakes, and a man constantly searching for the scent of his lover. The stories in ‘Arum Manis’ blur the boundaries between the real and surreal, tales set in rural and urban settings, exploring questions of loyalty and the passion of one-night love affairs.
