A traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe's nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.
Resonating with vibrant memories and silent echoes of a shared life, the old house is somehow connected to "C", a sensitive composer who is hesitant of leaving it, while his loving wife "M", on the other hand, is keen on moving out, having an indecipherable but grim premonition of danger. Sadly, disaster soon strikes, and C's untethered spectre which detaches from the lifeless body, rises from the mortician's table, and in a swift decision, decides to linger in this dimension to faithfully follow the grieving M back to the old house. As silent as a shadow and as invisible as the air, C's unappeasable phantom observes M's denial and depression gradually turn to acceptance and even hope, as time unravels, moving forward through the decades. In this earth, man struggles to leave his legacy behind. Is this the way to immortality?Written by
This is a film that is quite unique in the way the story is paced out. It starts out slow in the beginning and much like 2001, it build up as it goes along. Once you are involved in the story if you didn't fall asleep in the first 30 minutes, you are in for a treat. You will be transported into the experience of the ghost's story as it tries to understand the world it is in and passage of time. This is not intended to be a pun, but the movie is hauntingly good and the score of the film is quite amazing. If you are ready for a slow build into the story of a ghost as it experiences 'life', great cinematography and music, this film is awesome.
