AFTER your untimely death, you meet your boyfriend again in the afterlife. Reunion is sweet and bitter when you realize that despite your effort to save him, you couldn't stop him from his own demise. But soon, it becomes apparent that your afterlife isn't hell or heaven, but instead a gilded cage that trapped you in this world between life and death. And in these finals moments in each other's arms, you have to decide what's best for his future and yours.
