The series follows four friends who travel from Bangkok to a remote village in the mountains for a funeral of one of the group’s estranged father.

When the young friends unleash a curse long held at bay by the villagers, they discover cover-up upon cover-up, and soon everyone is a suspect in the mystery. But the woods conceal something worse than just superstition, and soon the whole group is being hunted.

It joins two other HBO Asia Originals now underway – horror series Folklore Season 2 and action-fantasy series Halfworlds Season 3 – which were both renewed in late 2020. Both Halfworlds Season 3 and the Philippines episode of Folklore Season 2 are currently filming in the Philippines, directed by Mikhail Red and Erik Matti respectively.
