In the idyllic seaside village of Kampung Rhu, a life rooted in tradition and ritual promises cohesion, beauty, and happiness. Norma, a spirited young seamstress who lives in the village with her father, stepmother, and noisy neighbors, dreams of freedom. One day, an unexpected visitor appears in the village with an enticing offer. Soon, Norma is bearing witness to mysterious events too intriguing to ignore. She discovers she has a part to play in uncovering the secrets surrounding her home. Saltwater Spirits is a coming-of-age story that weaves a lively cast of characters into a striking social backdrop to create a rich exploration of human nature.
