A teen influencer Mia puts her heart and soul on the line to save her ex-girlfriend from an angry ghost.
A teen influencer Mia is visiting her aunt in England, hating everything until she meets Poppy, who thinks she’s being haunted by a ghost. Mia agrees to help Poppy defeat the ghost, but secretly films everything for her Instagram. Mia and Poppy start to develop feelings for each other – until Poppy discovers Mia filmed everything and put it online. Now people are laughing at Poppy for believing in ghosts. Poppy breaks up with Mia. However, the ghost then possesses Poppy and only Mia can save her. Mia defeats the ghost and saves Poppy. In the process, she rips the veil between life and death. Now they have an even bigger problem on their hands.
