As an overworked widower, Elliot Hopper is on the verge of completing a major business deal when he takes a harrowing taxi ride that ends at the bottom of the river. Now a ghost, he must learn how to be seen and heard so he can take care of his family.
Elliot has a high-powered corporate job and a house full of kids to manage all on his own. So when he's caught in a fatal taxi fender-bender it's more than just a travesty -- it's a terrible inconvenience. Death will have to wait until Elliot gets his house, his career and his love-life in order.
