SYNOPSIS: (provided by the Sundance press office)
The beautiful Zel is a special woman. Her big house is full of ghosts of all ages from different eras. A psychic advisor, Zel works with her ethereal roommates to help her clients. Although its magical, it is also a job as she removes clients aches and pains, advises gamblers, and channels cranky spirits to check on their loved ones. Business is good—until the ghosts see the light one night. The ghost crew now feel they are trapped and start pressuring Zel for the truth.
Writer/director Tim Rutili is also a member of the band Califone, whose members act in the film and provide the lush original soundtrack. The band brought its music-making talent to the films construction, treating the footage and story like an album. Zels unique existence is a lesson in hope, habit, and folklore. The atmosphere is utterly enchanting, mixed with an odd realism, filled with as much humor as wonder.
