Sam Wheat is a Wall Street banker and his wife, Molly Jensen, is a successful artist. The two are madly in love with each other as they move into new apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. When Sam is unexpectedly murdered their lives take a dramatic turn.

We discover that Sam was murdered by his friend Carl Bruner, who is actually working for a drug cartel. Sam is now left to roam the earth as a powerless spirit, where he tries to figure out why he is still here.
