At an early age, Ned realizes that he has a unique gift - he can bring anything dead back to life. There are limits however: touched a second time, the object or person dies; and anything or anyone re-animated beyond 60 seconds will result in another object or person dying. Ned uses his powers sparingly, but when private detective Emerson Cod learns of his abilities, they form a partnership. Ned will re-animate murder victims (for less than 60 seconds) to learn the identity of their murderer. When Ned's childhood sweetheart Charlotte is killed however, he has a major decision to make.
