    • Synopsis
    • After a soul-searching journey traveling around the world, Jean Kaneko (Natalie Skye), a former Wall Street Banker returns home to Vancouver, still floating in limbo. Instead of settling down, she camps out in a friend's empty vacation home, and quickly finds the mansion haunted. Jean is forced to deal with her own inner demons and the spirits as tormented as herself. She finds out that if she wanted to stay, she'd have to share the place with some former occupants -- a cynical college professor (Alex Zahara), his bitter sister (Emilie Ullerup) married to a devoted husband (David Richmond-Peck), a disgruntled cab driver (Zahf Paroo) and a washed-up drifter (Zak Santiago) -- 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... Set primarily in one location, this imaginative psychological thriller roams in and out of the lives of lost souls, weaving reality with the other side. A ghost story that meditates on the precious gems along with the missed opportunities in this precarious thing we know as life.
