First time filmmaker Yixi Sun masterfully marries cultural elements from both East and West in order to deliver a visually breathtaking thriller that makes it impossible to take your eyes of the screen. Qi’an and Aimo are close friends living in London that take a film transcription job at a stunning countryside mansion.
They are to transcribe the films of a Chinese Kunqu Opera star Susu who married into the English family but lost her life 28 years ago. Both girls start to untangle disturbing family secrets which lead them to realise that they are trapped in the mansion, both physically and emotionally.
