Harold is a poltergeist whose afterlife is turned upside down when the once empty apartment he is instructed to haunt is inhabited by Aïssa. She is a recently widowed young woman working in tech. When Aïssa discovers a ghost living in her house, she refuses to leave. They must learn to live together – Harold, the lazy buffoon, and Aïssa, the over-achieving stress-freak. They are as different as night and day, like life and death. Together, they experience adventures, mixing their two very different worlds. Ghostly is about friendship, grief, our inner rebel without a cause and the scariest thing of all: loss.
