At the funeral of her grandmother, Yanlin, a young Chinese girl, learns that the deceased was a medium – and was possessed by a spirit named Gong. The film is Yanlin’s personal confessional – she never believed in the existence of miracles, but is now becoming interested in the world of spiritualism and finding out who Gong was in order to understand her grandmother better.


Yanlin Li (1994), a documentary filmmaker originally from China, is currently studying film directing at the Edinburgh College of Art. She addresses the themes of religion and faith in her work. She is now working on her first feature-length film.
