Sam Wheat (Swayze) and Molly Jensen (Moore) are deeply inÂ love and thinking about getting married.
One evening on a dark street, they encounter a mugger. Sam fights with him and there is a gunshot.Â He chases after the mugger, but when he returns to Molly, she is kneeling over his body. Apparently, Sam is dead, and he is now a spirit.
Sam tries to communicate with her but cannot. He wanders into aÂ spiritualist's shop, and discovers that the owner, Oda Mae Brown (Goldberg),Â can hear him but not see him.
He convinces her to help him communicate with Molly, but she doubts that Oda Mae is really talking to Sam.
In the meantime, Sam discovers where the murderer, Willy Lopez (Aviles), lives, and then finds that his colleague at work, Carl Bruner (Goldwyn), actuallyÂ set up Sam's murder so he can get to some information in Sam's home that will help him launder 4 million dollars.
Carl becomes suspicious when Molly mentions Willy's name, after she spoke with Sam through Oda Mae. So, now she is in danger of being murdered as well. Sam and Oda MaeÂ have to convince that Sam is really there and that she must run for her life.

Another surprise hit, the film won two Academy Awards.Â The final sequence is guaranteed to bring tears to even the tough guys in the audience.
The image is not quite as sharp as it could be, but there is good use of the surrounds, and the music by Maurice Jarre is superb.
Not very many extras. They include Director Commentary, The Making of, Inside the Paranormal, Cinema's Great Romances, and a few other things.
