Her death lands her on the embalming table of Elvis, an embittered young man whose sense of family duty and love for his ailing father keep him from following his dreams. When Anabelle is miraculously resurrected on Elvis' embalming table, the two unexpectedly connect and sparks fly. With the help of each other and Elvis' father, they discover love, freedom and happiness as the real world and their own demons threaten to force them apart. Written by

Did You Know?
When Annabelle is eating breakfast in the kitchen of the funeral home, her pink hoodie is zipped up. When she steps out onto the porch a few moments later to go home, the pink hoodie is now completely unzipped and fully open. Just a few seconds later, once Elvis decides to let Annabelle stay at the funeral home for a while, he shows her to an upstairs bedroom, and as she looks in the closet her pink hoodie is once again fully zipped up as it had been before she started to leave the funeral home.

[after the police have come by the house looking for Annabelle
Where did you tell them we were?
I just told them Annabelle had been here, but then uh, she just took off in our old Cadillac.
The one we've got parked up along side the house.
Dad, we don't have a Cadillac.
Well, they don't know that.
