Single mother Chun Hua works two jobs, struggling to survive the hustle of Taipei while facing a personal crisis. Summoned home to attend her grandfather’s funeral, she’s greeted by her cousin with oddly preternatural cheer, but treated with chilling disdain by her family, who insist she doesn’t belong there. Soon, Chun Hua’s ghostly nightmares begin to turn real, as she and her daughter are threatened by malevolent spirits and eerie visions. The dangers grow ever more deadly, devastating secrets are revealed, and lives are truly at stake—or is it already too late? Chilling camerawork, heart-stopping sound cues, and unexpected shock cuts all contribute to a mounting sense of dread in this superlative horror film, which probes the dark shadows of family dysfunction, crushing societal pressure, loneliness, and loss.
