The student film titled “Munkar” begins its story from the presence of a new female student at Pesantren Ar-Rahimu. There is nothing strange about the new student, only that she was born wealthy, thus having spoiled characteristics because she always gets what she wants throughout her life. That’s why her father intended to send her to a boarding school hoping that she would no longer be spoiled and would master the teachings of Islam.

During her time at the boarding school, she often neglects her duties such as waking up late, arriving late to class, and other things. Therefore, the students in the class that was originally a superior class had to undergo punishments.


This made some students dislike the presence of “her” (the new student) because she always made mistakes so that everyone had to bear the punishment that should not be imposed on them, but on the new female student.


Tired of cleaning the bathroom and various other types of punishment, Obi, Dilla, and Siti began to resent the new female student and threatened her both verbally and physically. Being a victim of bullying from her three classmates, Ranum, the close friend of the new female student, still willing to help her even though many did not want to be her friend.

Obi, Dilla, and Siti trapped the new female student who was about to iron her headscarf one night by placing the iron on her hand, pouring water on her, until the new female student tried to escape. Unknowingly, the new female student had wandered through the forest and out of the boarding school. While running away from her three classmates, the new female student had an accident being hit by a car. As a result, her head hit a piece of wood right in front of her.
