Listeners will be transfixed by Emi Ray's atmospheric performance of this creepy horror tale about the haunting power of a family legacy. Jade Nguyen--a bisexual teen who is part of the Vietnamese diaspora--begrudgingly returns to her former country to help her estranged father renovate a house in exchange for college tuition money. But what's supposed to be a focused trip quickly becomes an immersive experience filled with obsessive ghosts, crawling bugs, and sleep paralysis. Jade teams up with Florence, a beautiful and intriguing young woman from the neighborhood, to uncover the house's history of colonization and ancestral horrors. Ray's performance manifests Jade's dilemma: To fight the house's rot, she'll need to embrace who she is. Despite some clunky vocal transitions, Ray's narration brings tension to a chilling story.
