In the comedy GHOST TOWN, Bertram Pincus (Ricky Gervais) is a man whose people skills leave much to be desired. However, 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.
As Bertram Pincus tries to adjust to his newfound ability to not only see, but hear and speak, to this 'ghost' community, he discovers that they are a very demanding bunch. What's even worse is that they all want something from him, particularly Frank Herlihy (Greg Kinnear), who pesters him into breaking up the impending marriage of his widow Gwen (Tea Leoni).
