‘No 1, Greenfield Lane’ (Joseph Chang), a killer-for-hire working for a faux laundry service, has a haunting problem. Lately, he can’t seem to rid himself of those he brought to an early grave. His boss, the beautiful A-Gu, is concerned about this new development.

When A-Gu refers him to cute young psychic Lin-Hsiang, she isn’t really expecting much. But Lin-Hsiang is the real deal, and can see Mr. No 1 Greenfield Lane’s spirits clean as day. Begrudgingly Lin-Hsiang embarks on a supernatural journey with No 1, to rid him of these pests, while helping the spirits get revenge along the way.

But when the two uncover more than they bargained for, the ghosts are the least of their concerns… A supernatural romantic-comedy come thriller, THE LAUNDRYMAN is a fun-filled, quirky tale that offers laughs and thrills throughout.
