Somewhere, Tomorrow -- Sixteen-year-old Lori Anderson's world is falling apart. Her father has died and her mother is about to remarry, sell the family farm and move to a new town. But these troubles are nothing compared to what is about to happen... After getting a bad batch of fuel, seventeen-year-old pilot Terry Stockton crashes his two-seater plane near the Anderson farm. Lori witnesses the crash and meets Terry -- or rather, his ghost. Unknown to either of them, Terry actually died in the crash! Before long, both teens realize the situation: Terry is trapped on Earth and only Lori can see him.

Haunting, 10 February 2005
Author: Mark-129 from United States

Micro budget films don't get any better than this. There's something about the simplicity of both the star performances by Sarah Jessica Parker and Tom Shea and the Earnest script that speaks of truthfulness, Director Robert Wiemer works well with young actors and his writing is full of realistic dialog filmed on a budget.

The story follows young Lori Anderson, grieving over the loss of her father and angry that her mother has begun to pick up the pieces of her life with a new serious relationship. She meets Terry Stockton at the site of a private plane crash, only to realize he was killed in the crash. Together, they begin to piece together the reason Terry has remained earthbound as a ghost...and if it has anything to do with Lori.

Full of surprises, I'm still not sure of Terry's "true" identity. The script offers vague clues to another possibility. The song lyrics were apparently written by future "Star Trek" czar Rick Berman! He may have missed his calling.

In the end, this is a very good family film, that has the rare quality of never talking down to it's audience, whether child or adult and awaits a well deserved discovery with a DVD release.

Check it out!
