Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
An innocent, supernatural tale of love and ghosts and evil women, this Hong Kong film by director Li Hanxiang involves a traveler (Chao Lei) and his efforts to save a beautiful ghost (Betty Lo Tih). A villainous, nasty sorceress -- who happens to be the ghost's aunt -- has cast a spell that keeps the ghost bound to a temple where the traveler has stopped to spend the night. The sensuous supernatural spirit tries to seduce the innocent traveler but he resists her charms, especially when he realizes she is a ghost, and one with harmful intent at that. She is looking for victims for her evil aunt. Thanks to the morally upright traveler, there may be a ghost of a chance for the trapped spirit to go on to her next rebirth. Director Li worked in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Beijing during his career -- a highly unusual situation given the political rift between Beijing and Taiwan.
