The basic plot which revolves around a white-sheeted ghost returns to his suburban home to try to reconnect with his bereft wife, might sound a little silly and even childish to some.

This bold and powerful piece of cinema involves exploration of love and loss, and will make you question the enormity of existence. Casey Afleck stars in this haunting tale of loss and the afterlife.
