Nick Powell is an excellent high-school student who raises money by selling homework and results of quizzes to his schoolmates. He aims to travel to London for a writer's course - telling his best friend, Pete Egan, that he has already bought the airplane ticket but he has not told to his mother yet. Annie Newton has a problem with Pete, who owes money to her. As events unfold, due to a case of mistaken identity Nick takes a severe beating from Annie and her gang, his body dumped in a sewer. The next morning, he discovers he cannot be seen - he is now a spirit in a state of limbo and can only observe as the events of that day unfold. Written by

When you see Pete looking at the ticket, you can see that the band-aid is on his right thumb, even though he was cut on his left thumb. See more »
It wasn't easy when Nick's father died, raising a teenager alone. But with a boy like Nick, well, he is now everything a mother could want. We've been through some hard times. We've carried each other. Now I look to the future, and I know there's nothing that we can't do together.

I didn't see the trailer for this film before watching it (i still haven't seen it for that matter) so had no expectations prior to watching it. I also hadn't read any IMDb reviews which I am completely surprised at to be frank. If you like your films sickly sweet or ultra violent or packed with action or filled with CGI then no, you will not enjoy this movie. If however you don't have the attention span of a goldfish and can appreciate an in depth deep film focusing on the characters and the interactions between them then you will love it. Personally, i cant stand indie music but it fit in quite well with the story so even that can't be faulted. The camera-work was superb, the acting was well above average and none of the characters were hard to believe, which is a feat in itself considering the film is about a bloke that no-one can see or hear. In short, watch it if you can sit through a proper adult emotional movie. Don't watch it if you're after something more like 'ghost' or 'Hollow Man'
