When Adam wakes in hospital after a failed suicide attempt, he finds that he is not alone. In his room is someone only he can see and hear. Tied together by an invisible bond, Adam on his ghostly companion try to find a way to co-exist as Adam works to get his life back on track. But life is never that simple and as the pressure builds on Adam to appear 'normal', will his constant shadow turn out to be friend or foe?
