Juliana Zulham worked at a prestigious five-star hotel in Bali. Driven and meticulous, she quickly rose through the ranks, but was often haunted by her past. Raised by an austere and taciturn mother and a father who often went sailing for months, she grew up among sailors and fishermen in a rundown North Jakarta neighborhood. Will Juliana eventually be able to accept her past and release what was within her grasp?

Juliana Zulham bekerja di sebuah hotel bintang lima bergengsi di Bali. Dengan kecermatan, ia naik pangkat dengan cepat, tetapi sering dihantui oleh masa lalunya. Dibesarkan oleh seorang ibu yang keras dan kurang komunikatif serta seorang ayah yang sering pergi berlayar selama berbulan-bulan, ia tumbuh di antara para pelaut dan nelayan di lingkungan kumuh Jakarta Utara. Akankah Juliana akhirnya bisa menerima masa lalunya dan melepaskan apa yang ada dalam genggamannya?
