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 Annie is pushing back the sewer lid to find Nick's body, the "spirit" Nick is the one who ends up pushing the sewer lid the rest of the way open, even though he doesn't physically exist. 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.

Are you serious? The people who vote anything over 'one star' had something to do with the movie, or knows someone who did. I spent a fair amount of time trying to think of a worse movie; but even 'Lady in the Water,' was Oscar-calibre comparatively. I strongly suspect that the budget for the poster was greater than the budget for the movie; somebody clearly owed someone a reputation-killing favor; somebody shoud have stopped this atrocity coming out at the gate. I feel doubly duped because I spent $9 to see it because it was produced by the 'same people who produced 'The Sixth Sense,' and the co-writer of 'Batman Begins...' I don't know how others feel, but If I were associated in any way with either of those 2 movies; I'd not only be insulted; I'd be humiliated that I had any connection with this celluloid fecal matter, I'd distance myself with a time-displacer. If you were in the movie, and can redeem it in any way; please do so here: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm disappointed when I'm duped--if I know it's crap going in, that's one thing; but I went in expecting to see something more than a student project. --Mark Thompson
