Things are looking up for socially-awkward and unemployed Charlie when he finds a great new apartment that comes with everything -- even a ghost, Eddie, the type of roommate you'd want to strangle... if he weren't already dead. Eager to evict his haunted houseguest, Charlie agrees to help Eddie make amends with the living and get to heaven.
