An entertaining film for the whole family, full of excitement, humor and fantasy; based on Terry Pratchett's best-selling novel about a young boy's supernatural abilities. Only Johnny can see the Dead. His daily walk to school involves a shortcut through a run-down Victorian cemetery. On the day Johnny learns that the cemetery has been sold to property developers, the Dead appear before him and appeal to him to save their home. To save the cemetery, Johnny puts into action a hastily-organized campaign involving local newspaper archives, a public meeting and a confrontation with hired thugs. As the campaign progresses, the Dead, cautiously at first, venture out of the cemetery and into the outside world.
