Still image from the film A Tale of Two Sisters

Two sisters return home after an extended hospital stay. Things have not been the same since their mother passed away. Their return is welcomed by their stepmother. The older and stronger of the two sisters isn’t afraid to speak her mind, where the younger is more timid and wary of their stepmother. Continually abused and harassed by their stepmother, the two endure the relationship for their father’s sake. They eventually vow to never let their stepmother abuse them again.  Unexplainable things start to occur at the house. Could it be their stepmother trying to further torment them, or is a more sinister supernatural force at work?
