A villager goes to the Laotian capital, Vientiane. She has to look after her rich cousin who lost her sight and can now communicate with the dead. This cursed cousin's husband, an Estonian expat, also seems to be hiding dark secrets. This first film directed by a female Laotian was selected by many genre cinema festivals. A genre cinema that the film is reinventing.
