Chanthaly is Laos’ first feature horror film. It tells the story of a lonely girl afflicted with a hereditary heart condition. Raised by an overprotective father, she experiences visions of her dead mother and struggles to determine if the apparitions are a side effect of her daily medication, or if her mother is truly reaching out to her from beyond the grave.

Laos has produced less than 10 feature films in its cinematic history. Chanthaly marks several firsts including the director Mattie Do being the first woman ever to make a feature film in the country.
