A neglected wife gets revenge from beyond the grave in this inverted fairy tale set in Glendale, CA. Worn out with her husband Jonathan's infidelities and trying to keep their self-storage business afloat, the once-beautiful Penny falls dead from her office chair...while upstairs Jonathan blithely has sex with yet another lady customer. Without Penny, the feckless Jonathan finds his business crumbling. Worse, he can't stop seeing his dead wife, looking younger and more lovely with every appearance. The visions send him into a spiral of obsessive daydreams until, finally, he is unable to live without her…
