In “Umma,” which is the Korean word for “mother,” Sandra Oh stars as Amanda, a Korean immigrant who lives on an isolated farm with her teenage daughter, Chrissy. When Amanda receives her mother’s cremated ashes, she and Chrissy’s seemingly idyllic life begins to unravel as they get haunted by Umma’s ghost. Things only get worse once Umma’s spirit takes over Amanda, which causes her to become overly protective of Chrissy and not allow her to leave the farm. “There is nothing scarier than becoming your mother,” the film’s tagline reads.
