Mystifying the reason. Demystifying the supernatural

Almost everyone has experienced something that could be described as supernatural. This is a collection of the most fascinating mystical stories as told by ordinary people.

One is a haunting tale of three boys who come across some old jewelry in an uncovered grave at a cemetery. In the days that follow, two of the boys die under mysterious circumstances and the third is left paralyzed. Or here’s a story about a girl who sold her wedding dress. Suddenly her life turns upside down as she struggles to stay afloat. Eventually the girl finds that the new owner of the dress died while wearing it.

Mere coincidence or is there more to it? Theories explaining these phenomena fall into two basic categories: scientific explanations (medical, physiological and psychological) and supernatural explanations (religious, spiritual). The series offers both.

The stories are reenacted in the style of documentaries without dialogue, making them very suitable for local adaptation.
