Rae dan Rampak mengalami ujian dalam rumah tangga mereka di tahun keenam pernikahan mereka. Rae yang sebelumnya dimanjakan Rampak dalam sebuah rumah mewah harus rela pindah ke rumah kontrakan yang sangat sederhana. Kebiasaan Rae mengikuti aneka model fashion pun harus ia tinggalkan. Semua bermula karena usaha yang dikelola Rampak mengalami kebangkrutan.

Rampak merintis usahanya dari nol. Tidak ada campur tangan orang tuanya di sana atau pun mertuanya yang kaya raya. Semua ia peroleh dari tetes keringatnya sendiri. Semua usahanya berkembang. Usaha perumahan melesat, ia juga menginvestasikan uangnya untuk membeli beberapa ruko dan kemudian mengontrakkannya.

Semua aset yang dimiliki Rampak harus dijual karena Rampak ditipu oleh temannya. Pada sebuah project perumahan, ia mempercayakan temannya yang membangun. Namun, teman tersebut tidak membangun sesuai spek. Sehingga banyak kekurangan dan Rampak dituntut untuk mengganti rugi. Hal itulah yang membuat semua aset yang dimiliki Rampak harus dijual.

Orang tua tentunya tidak ingin melihat anaknya menderita. Begitu pun orangtua Rae. Melihat menantunya bangkrut dan anaknya harus menyertai suami pindah ke kontrakan yang kecil, orangtua Rae menawarkan bantuan. Tidak hanya itu, mereka juga menawarkan pekerjaan kepada Rampak. Tapi, semua itu ditolak olek Rampak. Ia tetap ingin bangkit tanpa bantuan orangtua atau mertuanya.

Ketika keuangan mereka semakin menipis, Rae hamil. Hal yang telah mereka nantikan itu seolah datang di saat yang tidak tepat. Ketika ekonomi sedang sulit dan Rampak tidak punya pekerjaan apa pun. Rae sempat kembali ke rumah orangtuanya, namun ia merasa tidak utuh tanpa kehadiran Rampak di sisinya. Rae pun kembali ke rumah kontrakannya yang sederhana dan memulai membuat kue untuk dijual karena Rampak tak kunjung mendapat pekerjaan.

Ujian rupanya tak berhenti begitu saja di kehidupan rumah tangga Rampak dan Rae. Mereka kembali diuji oleh satu hal yang membuat Rae kembali ke rumah orangtuanya. Rampak pun terusir dan merasa tidak berharga lagi. Satu-satunya hal yang ia miliki yaitu Rae pun mengusirnya. Rampak merasa kehilangan segalanya.

Rampak seorang arsitek. Ujian membuatnya menyadari jika ia belum menjadi seorang arsitek yang sebenarnya, profesi yang selama ini ia geluti. Arsitek adalah seorang seniman kehidupan, dia memikirkan berbagai aspek kehidupan manusia. Sementara seorang pebisnis hanya memikirkan keuntungan.
