    • Synopsis
    • In the classic era of Shanghai City, a woman fends across a bustling hall, leaps through its doors and onto her bicycle. After a few minutes of breakneck pedaling, she spots her boyfriend, Junchu, across the street. A moment’s wave and smile before she dives through the avenue’s traffic, her excitement blinding her from an oncoming car. The collision. Junchu freezes. The wedding ring box he’s holding slowly falls to the ground.
      Nine months later, Junchu has married Sansan to clam his mother’s superstitious fears. Despite Sansan’s fervent cooking and cleaning, her husband refuses even to set eyes on her, spending most of his evenings up in a room in the attic forbidden to everyone. But eerie events----mysterious sounds, the smell of incense, and the appearance of incantatory boards surrounding the room needle her. When Sansan accidentally finds the key to the room and opens the door, she is confronted with the haunting existence of the woman her husband refuses to forget.
