One moment we follow the kidnap of a young girl, then a chance encounter between two estranged brothers; we inspect the remains of the fire that has devastated the workers downstairs, then hear the confession of a woman who burns with passion for her son-in-law; yet we must all attend the chilling silence of the infamous Ghost Supper.
