Elle finds the body of her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Charlie, on her sofa, stabbed to death with her kitchen knife. Elle’s close friends stand by her through the difficult funeral, but Elle alone must face the loss of the man she had loved. Except that the loss is not total - Charlie is still around. Elle feels his presence, smells his aftershave, hears him accuse her of killing him. And even though she doesn’t believe in ghosts, she argues with him, asserting her innocence. Oddly, Elle has a gap in her memory; she can’t account for her activity during the time of his murder.
