20-year old Saatchi Brilliante's life changes when her employer, Datu, is killed in a sudden attack at the Spirit House. Suddenly, Saatchi finds herself in the middle of unfamiliar worlds: mystical salons, grand mansions, dreamlike spiritlands and rainforests, searching for the killer and the demon responsible.
Saatchi must tap into her Filipino culture and folklore and learn what it means to be a shaman, healer, sorceress - a babaylan.
Episode 1: Welcome to the Spirit House
20-year old Filipino-Canadian Saatchi Brilliante is on the hunt for another part-time job to pay for school. Soon, Saatchi finds herself with a side hustle way more than she bargained for - one that sends her to an ethereal and unreal world unlike ours.
Episode 2: It Started with a Pebble
There's too many questions. Who is Ren and why does he keep on saying he's been greeted by a spirit? How much does Sister Starla know about the ones unlike us? Saatchi doesn't know what to think nor does she want to revisit her long-forgotten past.
Episode 3: The Serpent Who Devoured Seven Moons
Although Saatchi finally gets some answers, she falls even deeper into the world of the unknown. Suddenly, there's all these hypnotic chants, spells, rituals, and her reality is becoming a bit more unsettling and mystical than she signed up for.
Episode 4: The Demon's Mansion
Saatchi moves in to Ren's mansion and gets a taste of the life of the 1%. But it doesn't seem like everyone's happy with her arrival, especially Ren's roommate - the serpent demon.
Episode 5: The Priestess Destiny
With too many spirits wanting to make an appearance and introduce themselves, it's getting harder to tell the difference between reality and the spirit world. Can Saatchi get out or will she be trapped like the many babaylans before her?
Episode 6: This Magic Is Made Up
Saatchi's starting to get the hang of rituals, although hers are a bit more freestyle. She's getting closer - to her mystical energy, babaylan magic, Ren's luxurious life, the truth, but also to demons waiting to pounce.
Extremely entertaining, captivating, and just... magical. Full of personality, tidbits of Filipino culture, and a sound that hooks you from the beginning. Definitely recommend!
