A crazy obsession causes Alia Shawkat to see ghosts.

Webtoon is a Korean comic app that has a range of very very strange but weirdly addicting stories written and illustrated by the Webtoon community. So we took one of those strange stories “Freaking Romance” and made an even stranger film featuring actress, comedian, artist and unknown twin to Illana Glazer, Alia Shawkat. Oh and did I mention that we did this all during a global pandemic?
