Ghosted is a mysterious love story set in Hamburg and Taipei. Through a mixture of flashback and present day storytelling we follow the Hamburg artist Sophie as she comes to terms with her Taiwanese lover Ai-Ling’s murder. To ease her grief Sophie creates a video installation about Ai-Ling, and when she brings the exhibition to Taipei she meets the ambitious and seductive Mei-Li, a journalist who is investigating Ai-Ling’s death. Unable to forget her dead lover and confused by Mei-Li’s advances, she flees back to Hamburg. But when Mei-Li turns up on her doorstep, Sophie begins to suspect something strange is going on.
