When a young Chinese immigrant is burned alive in a crematorium, the X-Files team go to Chinatown in search of a ring of masked killers. During the Festival of the Hungry Ghosts, they are aided by a handsome young Chinese-American police detective as they delve into the secrets of the close-knit community, where outsiders are viewed with suspicion and centuries-old traditions still rule. A clandestine burial is uncovered and Scully finds a living frog in a dead man. Finally, a father's desperate sacrifice for his dying daughter leads Mulder and Scully to a secret room, a cold-blooded surgeon, and a lottery from hell.
