Heung Wing (Anson Kong of Cantopop sensation Mirror) left his native Hong Kong for Canada long ago, hoping to escape his ability to see ghosts. When his mother's suicide attempt leaves her in a coma he must return to the unstable place he once called home. Back in the shoddy apartment complex where he grew up, disturbing childhood memories start flooding his mind while the tangible apparitions appear more frightening than ever. As Heung Wing witnesses more and more eerie happenings, he starts to question his own sanity while also suspecting a macabre conspiracy at work. Combining classic horror tropes with southern Chinese mythology to blur the lines between the lands of the living and the dead, director Nate Ki's accomplished feature debut is a baroquely grotesque affair replete with spooky children, self-mutilations, human sacrifices, black magic, and other visceral manifestations of the protagonist's troubled psyche.
