Storyline

Jean just quit her coveted job as an investment banker on Wall Street. After a soul-searching journey traveling around the world, she retreats to an empty vacation home owned by a friend's rich family. She unexpectedly finds herself sharing the place with some former occupants - a cynical college professor, his bitter sister married to a devoted husband, a disgruntled cab driver and a washed-up drifter; all of whom are not even supposed to be there, because they're actually dead. As Jean reluctantly confronts these souls as tormented as herself, they inevitably end up in an entangled mass of secrets and lies - This imaginative thriller roams in and out of the lives of lost souls, weaving reality with the other side. Written by Anonymous

Great Little Film
26 February 2017 | by fouregycatsSee all my reviews

When I discovered this film it was categorized as a horror movie, when in fact it's a character driven story of a young woman who, after giving up her job as an investment banker, stays in a friend's mother's exquisite modern mansion intending to write a travelogue. She soon finds that the place is haunted by some people who were involved in an auto accident and somehow have found their immortal spirits dwelling within this house.

After initially being frightened by the ghosts, she slowly gets to know them, and their stories merge with hers to create a film work that portrays the sadness and joy of being alive.

To say much else would spoil this rather unique film.
