A mother cuts her daughter's hair because her own hair starts falling out. A woman leaves her boyfriend because he reminds her of a corpse. A woman undergoes brain surgery to try and live more comfortably in higher temperatures. A widow attempts to physically transform into her husband so that she does not have to grieve. The characters that populate She is Haunted search for recognition and connection, and, more than anything else, small moments of empathy - offering piercing insights into transnational Asian identity and intergenerational trauma and grief, the dynamics of mother-daughter relationships, the inexplicable oddities of female friendship, and the love of a good dog.
