I sat there and watched all these smug, self satisfied subscribers look at each other with this "I *got* it, didn't you? Aren't we special" look.
Newsflash - the Emperor has no clothes.
OMG - the comparison to High School theater above is...continued
Jean is sleepwalking through her life until she answers a dead man’s cell phone. It turns out to be a wake-up call that sends her on a date with the dead man’s brother, a drinking binge with his wife, and a mysterious rendezvous with his mistress—not to mention trips to the afterlife and the black market. In this quirky modern adventure, Jean reconnects to her own spirit and learns that life is for the living.
