When May (Sammi Cheng) returns to Hong Kong after her husband had the misfortune of drowning on their honeymoon, it doesn't seem like she intends on spending much time mourning. Doing nothing to thwart the rumor that her marriage was based on financial security, May spends the majority of her time eating and watching bad television. After her own brush with death, however, she is forced to take her existence more seriously. Somehow evading death gives May -- or at least her left eye -- the ability to see the dead, and she slowly forges a friendship with a classmate of hers who also drowned years ago. My Left Eye Sees Ghosts also features Lau Ching-Wan, Lee San-San, and Bonnie Wong Man-Wai.
