Xin (“heart” in Mandarin) is the story of a woman haunted by the ghost of her mother after being her caregiver and watching her succumb to Atypical Parkinson’s Disease. With the help of her therapist, she tries to gain clarity on the nature of the hauntings. Are they a product of her grief and guilty conscience? Or are the hauntings truly urging her to perform the ultimate act of violence against her own father? Xin is a psychological drama/horror about surrender, grief, and healing.
