Synopsis

A loving father and devoted husband, Nick is driving north to finish building his fishing cabin at Loon Lake. Suddenly, Eddie, a fugitive on the run, dashes across the road. Nick swerves and crashes. Eddie tries to help but runs when the sheriff Hal arrives. After radioing for help, Hal decides to go after Eddie himself. Nick dies alone. As final as death is for the living, for the dead it is sometimes just the beginning. Nick can’t "let go". The pain his death has brought to his family is preventing him from "moving on". He finds an unusual way to "return".
