Motif explores the complexity of polygamy set within the parameters of a crime drama from an Asian, female perspective.

Driven by her relentlessness in seeking for answers, Inspector Dewi’s (Sharifah Amani) career with the KL City Police is on a rise. However, her new assignment to a small town is slowly unravelling her troubled personal life. Wedded as a second wife in a polygamous marriage, Dewi struggles for her husband’s attention, especially with the first wife already bearing his child.
