One day, while taking a shortcut through an old cemetery, 12-year-old Johnny Maxwell discovers he can see the spirits of the dead, who are not happy about having their cemetery levelled to make space for an office building. As Johnny gets to know them, he finds out that there are several remarkable people spending their afterlife there and he decides that it is important to keep the cemetery intact for them. He becomes involved in trying to save it, taking on both the city council and the big corporation, which has bought the land. At the same time he tries to make the afterlife more pleasant for the spirits. His friends, of course, think he's crazy. Things become complicated when both the big corporation and the spirits take matters into their own hands.
