What is the main plot of ‘Shadows House’ Season 1?
The main plot of ‘Shadows House’ circulates a living doll called Emilyko. She lives in a tremendously large and eerie mansion and serves a member of the Shadow Family named Kate. Kate is the proprietor of this dark and baffling household. Emilyko is doubtful about the strange and bizarre ways in which the members of the Shadow Family act. Nonetheless, she dearly takes care of her mistress, Kate. The Shadows are not humans but are otherworldly; supernatural creatures made up of some questionable and sketchy black-colored substance. Whatever they touch becomes dirty and gets covered with black soot or ash.
The Shadow Family creates such living dolls for their own purpose. They make the dolls their maids and make them perform ordinary functions. The dolls are made to cook and clean the house – even the ashy soot needs to be eliminated and tidied up. Even the children of the Shadow Family own dolls that are their servants. The dolls go about as their friends. If a doll cannot work as expected, it is completely obliterated and demolished. Then, the child remains friendless and is obligated to stay detached from the rest of the family members. The child is not even permitted to grow up into an adult. These dolls also act as the faces of their masters and help the members of the Shadow Family express themselves and communicate.
Being metaphorically and literally dark, the story of ‘Shadows House’ seems to create a perfect balance between a dark mystery and childish innocence. The viewers are yet to find out if the plot is going to get any darker and creepier.
