    • Synopsis
    • A magnificent vacant manor is located at an outcast of a town where large fields and a dense forest met. WAI MAUNG with a plan to transform it into a haunted attraction goes there along with his best friend, an architect, ZAW LATT, who has a passion on designing the haunted houses, against the warning of their parents. As it is abandoned for many years, the manor is in a terrible condition. In order to repair it to a liveable state, they have hired a local contractor, AUNG AUNG, in advance to do the restoration. Once Wai Maung and Zaw Latt set foot there, the ghost with a top-knot hair wearing a Burmese traditional jacket is awaiting them.
      THANT SIN, Wai Maung’s father, has an entirely different plan for the vintage five-star hotel. In any favour to stop his son’s impulsive actions and to gather feasibility surveys on hotel business and to learn the conditions of the manor, he requests the general manager who is also the company shareholder, CHAN, to go to the manor. But unexpectedly, Chan is also the one who awakens the supernatural activities related to the mysterious past of the manor.
      THAWDAR, the childhood friend of Wai Maung and Zaw Latt, has a passion for paranormal investigations and loves to visit the old houses where the ghosts are said to be there. Because of her strange habit, her aunt, who is also a devoted religious practitioner, THITSAR, has involved visiting the manor.
      Eventually, the conflicts between Chan who doesn’t believe in ghosts and Wai Maung, who firmly believes in it subconsciously arise. The labours frighteningly run away and Chan accuses Wai Maung to stop staging the scares those cause the labours away. At that time, Zaw Latt faces almost fatal by the ghost and Wai Maung urges Chan to accept the reality. Chan, being reluctant to believe in ghost, shouts out loud challenging if there is any ghost around. Coincidently, at his challenging words, the sun slowly goes into eclipse. The demonic power of a top-knot ghost become stronger and stronger then finally reach its maximisation. Meanwhiles, all the windows and the doors of the manor are immediately shutting down and all the people inside the manor are locked up.
      Surprisingly, they find out that there is a mutual connection between the previous existences of Chan and Wai Maung and the ghost. Having waited for so long with vengeance, the ghost wants to take not only their lives, but also any other inside there. They only have a chance to protect themselves alive from the revengeful attacks of the ghost during the sun eclipse time.
