Edward (Bill Milner - SON OF RAMBOW) isn't your average 12 year-old. Fanatical about ghosts and the afterlife, his parents (Anne-Marie Duff and David Morrissey) are worried that he'll miss out on other opportunities life might present.

However, Edward's world is suddenly disrupted by the arrival of a retired magician, Clarence (Michael Caine), who comes to stay. Edward has no choice but talk to the rather grumpy old man who's taken over his bedroom.

As the weeks pass by, their antagonism turns to friendship and Clarence convinces Edward to engage with the world of the living and the young boy helps Clarence confront the ghosts of his past.

From the producer of LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE and the HARRY POTTER movies and the director of TV Channel 4's acclaimed BOY A.
