Nok, a young country girl from a rural Lao village has taken a job as a helper for a wealthy distant cousin, Ana, in the capital that is losing her sight.
While her sight diminishes, Ana begins noticing shadowy figures on the edges of her peripheral vision which deliver a numeric message she cannot recall or decipher.
While everyone assumes them to be hallucinations, or a figment of Ana's depressed imagination,only Nok, the sole witness of these hauntings,
can recall the numbers and believes that.
these figures are actually supernatural visitors.
When Nok uses the numbers in the Lao lottery and wins, she begins to realize that there is more to the messages than just delirium, but that she also must choose whether to help her cousin through the encounters
or help herself with her new found wealth.
