Storyline

Popular model student Matthew 'Matt' Jannett is likely to get a college scholarship as diver, but the absurd pressure from father, a rigorous cop, is getting to him. When he and his mates decide to go swimming drunk at night, Matt takes off with his girl-friend Rachel Linden when the others strip. Rachel thinks he's in danger after a bad dive, jumps after him but trips, hits her head and drowns. Yet the whole community treats Matt as if he killed her by neglect, he's automatically suspended there's even a police investigation. Rachel's rival Vanessa Canningham now tries to seduce Matt. Rachel's guardian angel Will however coaches her to learn manipulating people so as to organize revenge and save Matt. Written by KGF Vissers

A better movie than most teenage movies.
24 April 1999 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

This movie, blended a mixture of ghost and the 1999 Hollywood craze of teenage movies. The plot is simple, but the movie is well acted and also very interesting. Although it is a TV movie, it is better than most of this year's cinema releases. This movie shows a great improvement in the making of television movies this decade. WELL DONE PARAMOUNT!!!!
