Taryn Melwood was abused as a young teenager by her foster father, John Stone, the county sheriff and a pillar of the community. Now in her early twenties, Taryn is trying to pull her life together when Stone, still sexually obsessed, stalks and and kills her. In the three days between her death and an eternity of wandering the earth as a ghost, Taryn's spirit creates a bond with "Hero" Flynn, whose clairvoyant ability allows him to contact her. Together, in the short time before her burial, they conceive a plot to expose Stone as the child abuser and killer he really is. Only by settling her score with Stone can Taryn then look forward to a peaceful afterlife.
