It's Christian's first day on his new job as a security guard at the local morgue; but to his surprise the job advert isn't all what it seemed when he inadvertently signs up to be a Necro Nurse as he finds out that every night the dead are walking the corridors of the building - trapped souls weighted down by problems left unsolved in their lives. It’s Christian's job to take care of their personal matters in the daytime, saving these poor souls from destruction. Trouble arises when he falls in love with a girl who is already dead.
The old adage "They'll date anyone with a pulse" is gleefully flipped on it's head in this dizzying and fantastical romance that's like WHEN HARRY MET SALLY but for necrophiliacs.
