The Golden Child- What About The Film Is?

The story starts in a temple that is situated in Tibet. A  boy who has magical powers is the main character of the story on the other side we see, a puzzling man, Sardo Numspa, has his men break into the sanctuary, butcher the priests, and kidnap the kid.

A young lady, Kee Nang, watches a Los Angeles TV show in which social specialist Chandler Jarrell discusses his most recent case, a missing young lady named Cheryll Mosley.

Kee searches him out and illuminates him regarding the capturing of the Golden Child and that he is the “picked one” who might save the Child.

Chandler doesn’t approach this in a serious way, even after a bird starts following him, and him seeing an astral projection of the Child.

The following day, Cheryll Mosley has discovered dead almost a neglected house spread with Tibetan spray painting and a pot loaded with blood-doused cereal.

Kee uncovers to Chandler that this house was a holding place for the Child and acquaints him with Doctor Hong, a spiritualist master, and Kala (an animal half-mythical beast, half lady, who stays taken cover behind a screen).

At the end of the story, we see Chandler and the Child head to Doctor Hong’s shop, the same place where Kee is placed.

As the two methodologies, Kee is serious, her body is filled with a number of wounds. However crazy Numspa assaults Chandler, yet at the same time, the talisman the Old Man sold Chandler ensures him and shoots the knife from Numspa’s hand.

The Child utilizes his sorcery to put the knife once more into Chandler’s hands, and Chandler cuts Numspa through the heart, obliterating him.

At that point, the kid decided to use his powers and utilizes the last beams of daylight and his forces to bring Kee resurrected. The three later go for a stroll examining the Child’s re-visitation of Tibet.d and the story ends…

The ending of the story simply means that we are going to see one more season with a new concept but a different child.
