Can You Hear Me?

Nominees and Awards


Jhong wakes up at home and finds himself dead. He watches his wife and children deal with his death as they speak their thoughts over breakfast. Shortly after, absurd things begin to happen: Jhong’s spirit starts nagging beside his own corpse, but no one can hear him; his son is afraid his mother will be charged with manslaughter; the policeman who comes to help is terrified upon seeing Jhong’s ghost; and Jhong’s wife insists on taking her husband’s corpse for a walk by the riverbank.
