Azka; “My whole life it was obvious I was going to end up in this island of God’s. I don’t want to be arrogant here, but I’m an incredibly attractive man. I can’t help it, I don’t try to be, I just am. When I was a kid my mother’s best friend used to tell me that I was gonna be a little heart breaker. Turns out she was right. Her husband came home from work one day and found us fuckin’ on the Stairmaster. Bali, Indonesia – that’s where all the beautiful little heart breakers go to live the dream. 30,000 of them arrive here every single month. 30,000 prom kings and queens, and Little Miss Cute Tits every one of them with stars in their eyes and a dream in their heart. When I first came out here, I had a dream – a dream of an easy life. I was gonna get rich from lyin’ around having my picture taken. I was gonna live in the hills and drive a noisy yellow sports bike and fuck 75cm girls who weighed 50kg’s. Guess what? Most of it came true.”
A story about who i called narcissistic gigolo Azka who lives in beautiful island Bali, drifting from one relationship to another without a steady job or even a place to live. He preys on women who can provide for him, using his looks and sexual prowess to keep them happy.
Before long, however, Azka starts cheating on Norine, first with his friend then with Lala who actually had relationship with his best-friends, whom he met at another party. Lala disapproves of Azka’s free-wheeling lifestyle and has expressed a desire for a relationship, but Azka has no real interest in her except for sex. Norine catches Azka with Lala, but they come to an uneasy arrangement where she will ignore his infidelity.
While Norine is out of town, Azka meets a girl named Letisia. He enlists his friend Harry to help him get Leti interested, but she doesn’t fall for his charms. Although he eventually gets a date with her, she abandons him afterwards. Soon after, Leti unexpectedly shows up in Azka’s pool and they end up having sex in table while a cup of chocolate Nutella spilled on they tattoo skin. The next morning Azka is moving Leti’s car and realizes it doesn’t belong to her but to her “boyfriend”, after she told him she was single; Azka throws her out in anger.
However, he can’t stop thinking about her, and his obsession frustrates Norine to the point that she gets fed up and throws him out.
Azka searches for a place to stay, but has a fall out with Harry and cannot get into the parties he once did. He runs into Leti at a swanky boarding house, and she admits that she was only interested in him for his house, believing him to be rich. It transpires that she is the same as Azka, scamming rich men for money in the same way he does with women. She lets him move in with her and her room-mate Maria. They begin dating, though Leti continues to scam and hustle, with some reluctant assistance from Azka.
One day, an upset Leti reveals to Azka that she just broke up with her fiancé because she’s in love with him (Azka). She further tells him her fiancé’s family owns almost 60% Club in Bali and that he’s the one who’s been paying her bills and living expenses. Azka, who has also fallen in love with Leti, is nonetheless angry that she kept her engagement from him, and leaves the house in a huff. When he returns he only finds a note that says she has left for Jakarta.
At Maria’s urging and with Harry paying for the airfare, Azka follows her. He finds her at a plush penthouse and begs her to come back to Bali with him. She refuses, telling him she can’t afford to let him chase his fantasies around while she runs down the funds they would need to live. He then proposes to her, but she tells him that she is already married, breaking his heart. When told about divorce, Leti says that she can’t, because she needs the luxuries and high expenses. Her husband suddenly returns home and Leti passes Azka off as a grocery boy, dismissing him.
Azka end up stay in Jakarta, getting an honest job in five star hotel and start living together with his dying memory. And an odd morning conversation with his random girl in bed;
Azka: “We’re not gonna do this for forever”
Girl: “I know, but we can do this a little bit longer”… .
That he will never in love with anyone he think he deserve, because he deserve nothing.
