  Trailer :

    In the leap month in 2016, six Tunghu University students, who were running a camp, held a test of courage on the (in)famous Female Ghost Bridge. The Female Ghost Bridge is a forbidden spot on campus since rumor has it that years ago, a girl jumped off the bridge and drowned herself for the man she loved. Ever since then so many ghost stories about the tragedy have been circulating. In order to promote the test of courage, a group of students daringly did a live stream on the bridge late at night. To their astonishment, they caught the female ghost on camera, and it went viral with millions of viewers online. However, the group of students went missing soon afterwards… Exactly four years later, an investigative journalist Lien Shu-yu comes to the Female Ghost Bridge with a cameraman, trying to find out about the truth. They can never expect that they would stumble upon the hell underneath the bridge, in which several spirits are forever trapped.

    Based on an urban legend about a haunted bridge at Taichung's Tunghai University, which is said to be haunted by the ghost of a heartbroken girl who killed herself there. The movie follows a group of university students who, while filming a video at the cursed bridge, discover that the supposed evil there might be real after all.
