Aspiring pop musician Sossity Chandler lands a much-needed job in a play that has a part for a folk singer. The money is welcome, and she has acted before, but she did not anticipate encountering a stage ghost as part of the deal.
Research tells her the woman was murdered just before the premier of a new work to have been played in the same theater they are in now. She also discovers that in order for the ghost to go free she must act a role there in place of the one denied to her by her ultimately death.
Sossity hatches a scheme to bring this about but finds that ghosts have conflicts just as the living do. The attempt to free the long-deceased actress involves both of them in various struggles and begins to bond them in a friendship that stretches over time and the limits of life and death.
