As we are leaning more into the idea that our universe is not really alone, well this fantasy drama, it hypothesises that there is another universe which has a backdoor connected to our own universe.
This backdoor is the Rakshasa Street (or Requiem Street), which is guarded by Cao Yan Bing, who is the fire guardian as well as the Suppressing Spirit General of Rakshasa Street. He has a very demanding job because Rakshasa Street also leads directly to hell. And it seemed all hell broke loose as the street is also home to ghost, spirits, evil spirits, phantoms and guardian spirits.
Xia Ling is a newly university graduate and works as an intern in a large company. On her way home one day, the bus she was in entered into a mysterious tunnel and plummeted into an abyss of darkness. A gorgeous guardian spirit plucked her out of the falling bus and delivered her to safety.
The next thing was that some ghoulish creatures, like from Power Rangers 🙂 came to collect the bodies of the dead people from the bus.
Xia Ling was helping a little girl escape when the ghouls noticed her. She was cornered and awaiting her death when Cao Yan Bing with his silver bat (a la Lucille of Walking Dead) came to her rescue.
The next thing Xia Ling knew was waking up in the hospital.
