As his current film shoot is suspended indefinitely an aging actor clandestinely settles into an abandoned house where the love of his life once lived. A group of young friends, novice filmmakers, stumble upon the same house and decide it’s the perfect location for their next home-made horror movie. Jean and the kids will meet face to face, sooner or later. Director Nobuhiro Suwa and DP Tom Harari created "one of the sunniest ghost movies ever" (jbspins.com), that offers an "intense beauty, especially when it comes to color: the reds, blues, and yellows of the interiors are like Matisse paintings come alive."
