YANGSZE COO (MORROW)
It’s the 1890s in colonial Malaya and a young Chinese woman, Li Lan, hopes for a favourable marriage. But when a proposal come along, it’s not what she had hoped for. The wealthy family who has sent in their request for her hand in marriage wants her to marry their dead son who begins to shadow Li Lan in her mirror and her dreams. Set in the world of the Chinese afterlife, with its parallel ghost cities and monstrous bureaucracy, The Ghost Bride is based on a historic custom amongst the Chinese in Malaysia called a spirit marriage.
