THE STORY:

Olivia Streep wants to turn her husband’s childhood home into a lavish Bed & Breakfast. This has been her dream for a long time. The only thing that could stop her from making this dream come true, is her mother-in-law Ella… who died a few months ago. Ella and her (dead) husband Stellan have decided to spend their afterlife in their Family Home and Ella is determined to do anything it takes to stop her daughter-in-law’s plan. With help from an eclectic bunch of spirits: a Witch, a glamorous movie star, two dim-witted baby-sitters and a creepy child, Ella will go head to head with Olivia and the Medium that she has hired to banish Ella. An all-out war is about to break out between the human world and the supernatural one. Who will win?
