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

A subplot was removed involving drug smugglers. It was feared this would give it an R-rating and wasn't necessary to the plot. See more »
The car hot wired outside the jewlery store is a Mercedes Benz with an ignition system that cannot be started in any way at all without the electronic key. This system is called DAS, Drive Authorization System. There is no way they could have started that car without the key to 'authorize' the starting of the vehicle. See more »

This film was a brilliant make. it arouses several types of emotions mixing them all together, let you feel a different kind of emotion to almost the full extent from moment to moment, producing understanding, acceptance, hope, love, sorrow, anger, frustration, disappointment and several more. I did not cry, but I felt, I was focused on this film, intrigued, surprised, not to mention that the acting supplied was splendid, it was truly a movie that in way I can not explain, moved me. I guess I feel compelled to share, that I am healing from brain damage and I suffer from health uncertain and not so positive all caused by lies, miss-understanding and psych meds.. I state this because what I am going through make it very hard, to focus, and get into, and feel, and many more things, but this film truly did to me as I stated out, and for me that clearly registers the story in the film and the film it self as a great achievement. It takes true wisdom, forgiveness, ability self worth and acceptance to react as the the main character reacted. I am proud to understand that from past experiences that I have went through, and through some experiences that In my situation I am going through.
