An excellent short film
11 May 2003 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

A Chinese-American teenager, unable to cope with the death of her mother, becomes obsessed with the story of a ghost in a nearby pond. I was so caught up in the threats to her physical and emotional well-being that at one climactic moment I actually gasped aloud in dismay. A beautiful job all around, writing, acting and photography.
