A film crew arrives in Thailand to document the story of an unusual family. The aging shaman Nim is – like all the women in her family – possessed by a goddess who is able to cure villagers of their spiritual ills. Her niece and successor Mink rejects shamanism. When her body begins to undergo a spiritual and physical transformation, this ordinary documentary suddenly becomes a disconcerting found footage film. The film’s chilling atmosphere is sure to shock even calloused viewers.
