Raised alone by her overprotective father sequestered in their home in Vientiane, Laos, Chanthaly suspects that her dead mother's ghost is trying to deliver a message to her from the afterlife. After a change in her medication, intended to treat her hereditary heart condition, causes the hallucinations to cease, Chanthaly must decide whether or not to risk succumbing to her terminal illness in order to hear her mother's last words.
Chanthaly is Lao’s first fantastic movie and Mattie the first-ever female director. It is being screened in its full uncensored version.
