A troubled teenager is sent to the tiny beachside town of Minnamurra to be tamed by her indomitable grandmother.
Soon after arriving, she’s caught stealing money by her dead grandfather who materialises in front of her. His death has clearly not prevented him carrying on with his life.
Amongst the eccentric neighbours another teenager can see the dead and they immediately bond.
Matters are further complicated when her grandmother dies and struggles to re-appear. Just after burying the body in the back garden her father turns up unannounced.
Out of this calamity her family stumbles back together and she’s forced to face her fears.
