Leon Leigh, an antiques collector, inherits a house from his estranged mother only to discover that she had been living in a shrine devoted to a mysterious cult of angels. Soon Leon comes to suspect that his mother’s oppressive spirit still lingers within her home and is using items in the house to contact him with an urgent message. Multiple-award winning filmmaker Rodrigo Gudiño has crafted a terrifying new film with a strikingly original narrative technique that looks at the psychology of ghosts.
