Charlie has the opportunity to go to Standford University but when his younger brother, Sam (Charlie Tahan), dies in a car accident, he is left reconsidering his future. When he realises he can see and communicate with Sam, Charlie determines to take a job as a cemetery caretaker instead of going to university. The two brothers meet every night but the return of Tess (Amanda Crew), a sailor who went to school with Charlie, causes a divide between the brothers. When Charlie learns Tess's life is in danger, he has to choose between keeping a promise to his deceased brother in the afterlife and saving Tess in the real world.
