Nok leaves her village headed for the big city. Once there, Nok moves in with her cousin Ana, confined to her home because of a strange disease that is leaving her blind as well as bringing her face to face with violent supernatural encounters, after which she mumbles a series of numbers predicting the winning lottery tickets. Will Nok be capable of getting rich off of her cousin’s anguish?
