Storyline

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 his mother yet. Annie Newton has a problem with Pete, who owes her money. 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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

Nick (to test if he was alive) takes a shotgun from the rack, steps out of view and discharges the weapon. The mistake is that the shotgun he took from the rack was a double barrel shotgun but you hear the sound of him "racking a round" as if it was a pump shotgun just before pulling the trigger.

Quotes

[first lines]
Diane Powell: 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.

Better Than Average of Almost Coming of Age Film
14 March 2019 | by arthur_taferoSee all my reviews

There are elements of "The Sixth Sense", "Romeo and Juliet", "Ghost" and "DOA", among others. That is a real smorgasbord of film. The film held my attention for the full hour and a half, so it must have been good at several levels, although, on the surface, it seems just like a teenage fantasy film. One valuable lesson I learned from this film is that teenagers are awfully hard to kill at times. Seriously, though, folks, it is a very watchable film. The lead actors were excellent, but have pretty much been Invisible ever since this film was made; which is pretty sad, considering the female lead was worthy of good future roles, but opted to take any crappy role that came her way. I never heard of the male lead getting another significant gig, either. Its been 15 years since this film was made and both of these actors are now middle-aged, so I guess they both missed the boat. The direction was pretty good, as were the production values and music, and the film is definitely better than average. Check it out.
