Bertram Pincus is a man whose people skills leave much to be desired. When Pincus dies unexpectedly, but is miraculously revived after seven minutes, he wakes up to discover that he now has the annoying ability to see ghosts. Even worse, they all want something from him, particularly Frank Herlihy who pesters him into breaking up the impending marriage of his widow Gwen. That puts Pincus squarely in the middle of a triangle with spirited result. - Studio Approved Synopsis

It's a fact. Frank Herlihy is the unluckiest man alive, or better still, was the unluckiest man alive. Now that smooth-talker Frank is actually a ghost trapped between this world and the next, he will eventually cross paths with the quiet, yet eccentric and self-centred Manhattan dentist Bertram Pincus, who in turn, possesses a rather exotic and utterly unwelcome charisma: the ability not only to witness phantoms of deceased people but also to converse with them. Could this farcical sixth sense be a severe case of a vivid visual hallucinatory syndrome or some kind of biochemical anomaly? Either way, now that every pushy, demanding and totally frustrated ghost with unfinished business in New York has got Bertram's home address, the cold and selfish dentist must try for once to involve himself with the needs of others and prevent Frank's widow Gwen to make the mistake of her life. Is that so much to ask? - Nick Riganas
