Storyline

Julia is a teenager filled with angst. She's on vacation with her family in their summerhouse in the forest. She hates her manipulative and possibly psychotic little brother, her meek father and her commanding mother. She even fantasizes about killing them and herself, although it's clear that she's not serious about it. Her only friend is her tape recorder which she uses to make her audio diary. A handyman shows up now and then and she often fantasizes about him. One day she decides to approach him, but he doesn't respond. She tries to touch him, but he walk right through her. Shocked, she tells about this to her parents, but her mother doesn't believe her and her father is too tired to argue. Julia concludes that the handyman is a ghost and tries to make contact again. The idea of being in love with a ghost sounds quite romantic to her. She's about to learn that people sometimes intentionally choose to be delusional, because the truth is too much to bare.
