Synopsis

Bethany Paige, 14, is just starting high school. On the shy side, Bethany is trying to emerge from the shadow of her overachieving, older sister Amanda who died in an accident when she was sixteen. Since Amanda died, her shadow has only grown as her loved ones remember her as perfect. This is a perfect nightmare for Bethany who is now held to an impossible standard.

To make matters worse, Amanda is haunting the family home and her presence gets more disturbing all the time. Mrs. Paige, the girls' mother, has a strong spiritual connection to Amanda and is constantly trying to sooth Amanda's restless spirit. Meanwhile, Bethany and her father are confounded by what's going on with Mrs. Paige, let alone how to deal with a spirit they can't perceive.

Bethany is determined to figure out what is happening in her home so she can return to a "normal" life. With the help of her best friend, Crystal Albright, a lively girl with a latent power to channel the dead, Bethany discovers that her sister's spirit is anything but free.

This light hearted movie will be the first in a series as Bethany and Crystal navigate between two worlds with Amanda living vicariously through them and all three girls figuring out what to do next.
