WeTV Original Synopsis Teluk Alaska

Ana never thought that she would meet Alister, her childhood friend who had been separated for a long time. Now, they both study at the same school. Even more surprising, Alister did not recognize Ana at all. For Ana, Alister has changed her attitude to be cold, very different from the Alister she used to know. Alister’s presence at the school apparently gets the attention of Tasya, the school’s Queen Bee who is the perpetrator of bullying against Ana along with her followers, Iqbal, as well as Cindy and her boyfriend, Andra.

Devano is not only involved as the main character, in this series Devano also fills the OST – Original Soundtrack of the Gulf of Alaska, with a song titled ‘Teenagers’, which of course is inspired by the series “Teluk Alaska””. On the other hand, Devano is also directly involved in songwriting with MD Music Indonesia and is assisted by other great musicians. The song, which is packaged very fresh and contemporary, is also more beautiful with the guitar instrument.

As a childhood friend, Ana tries to get closer to Alister. Various ways and efforts were tried. On the other hand, Tasya, who increasingly dislikes Ana, tries to justify all events to vent her frustration with Ana. Luckily, Ana still has Bulan, the principal’s son, who is her best friend.

Alister and Ana must face Tasya’s cunning efforts and overcome a more difficult obstacle, namely the blessing of their parents. Slowly, the truth of the past began to unfold. They believe that being together will only cause them to hurt each other. Ana realizes her relationship with Alister will always be like Teluk Alaska, where two different oceans collide that can never unite.
