    Far from home, afraid of the dark, 17 year old Ying Ling is training to become a mortician in one of China’s largest funeral homes. Despite her fear of ghosts, Ying Ling is determined to stick it out for her family’s sake. She strikes up a special friendship with her co-worker Jin Hau. In their spare time, bantering playfully with each other, a welcome relief from the daily grind at the funeral home. When Jin Hau decides to leave, Ying Ling is left alone. Even though she masters the art of the mortician’s spa, she finally resolves to change her life.
