When documentary filmmaker, Ben Lawrence investigates a newspaper article about a local security guard and part-time ghost hunter, Jason King - he begins a seven-year journey into a world of haunted homes and broken souls and discovers a story about a man confronting his innermost demons. Soon after they meet, Jason presents Ben with a stack of hospital records from his childhood. Sensing there is more to the story, Ben offers to help Jason in his decades long search for the only person who may hold the key to Jason’s lost childhood – his father. Part true-crime, part family mystery, GHOSTHUNTER is a real-life ghost story of one man unearthing his past to reclaim his future. It is an emotional, peculiar and at times darkly humorous journey of catharsis through haunted lives - culminating in a confrontation with inner demons and the first steps on the road to healing.
