Only she learns more about how dangerous this journey is, most of this journey is done without her needing to say anything, letting her reaction show how she feels.

Katreeva Phillips in the leading role is good. It is hard for her to make the biggest impact, as she is only really listening to tapes on the journey. This is going to be the same for the performances throughout the whole movie, it is more focused on the mystery involved.

This is an interesting story because it follows the mystery of an event that involved a loved one. It highlights how certain stories can be retraced to connect after death, only using the supernatural twist on it all. It might not end up being the biggest story, but it gets everything that needs to give us a mystery.
