Written amid many challenges, Love Munir records Suciwati’s life path as the wife of Munir Said Thalib, a courageous Indonesian activist who was killed for defending human rights and civil protections. Even though there are many questions surrounding his death, his fighting spirit is kept alive in Suciwati’s heart. Suciwati will talk with Kamila Andini and Engel Tanzil about the activist in a different light.

Ditulis dengan banyak tantangan, Mencintai Munir merekam perjalanan hidup Suciwati sebagai istri Munir, seorang aktivis Indonesia yang dibunuh karena keberaniannya membela hak asasi manusia dan perlindungan sipil. Meski banyak pertanyaan seputar kematiannya, namun semangat juangnya tetap membara di hati Suciwati. Suciwati Munir akan berbicara dengan Kamila Andini dan Engel Tanzil tentang aktivis dengan cara yang berbeda.
