Alyssa (Marina Resa), needing to escape from her possessive boyfriend, takes a job as a housekeeper for Miss Wu (Shirley To) and her devoutly religious Aunt Chen (Akiko Shima). Unfortunately, her employment begins during the Ghost Month. According to the Chinese calendar, the seventh month of the year marks the time when restless spirits break free from hell to mix among the mortals. During this time, specific rules must be followed to avoid falling prey to the damned: Do not whistle, for it will only invite them into the house; do not turn at the sound of your name, for it will open your soul to them; and never disturb ashes on the ground, for it will only anger them.
Can Alyssa comply with the rules and honor the customs or will she trust that if she simply leaves the spirits alone, they’ll leave her alone?
