Synopsis: An adorable and ditsy young woman inherits her late grandfather’s haunted estate but soon discovers that the ghostly inhabitants are there to protect the family’s secret artifacts against treasure-hunting criminals. Once she learns of an unmatched power and confidence she has always possessed, the treasure-hunting criminals stand no chance against her and the Kung Fu Ghost!

Filmmaker Jennifer Linch shares, “My happiest childhood memories were movie nights with my parents and brothers watching martial arts comedies by Jackie Chan or Stephen Chow. I knew then I wanted to make martial arts comedies when I grew up so other little girls could have happy memories like mine.”
