One night, they hear a substantial strike against their piano, yet can’t discover the reason for the commotion. Some time later, C is killed in an auto collision outside his home. At the funeral home, he stirs as a phantom canvassed in a white sheet with two dark openings for eyes. As he meanders capriciously through the doctor’s facility, nobody else ready to see him, he reaches the finish of a foyer and sees an entryway of brilliant glimmering light open before him. In the wake of gazing at it, the entryway in the long run closes.

C’s phantom leaves the doctor’s facility and comes back to his home, watching his better half lament over her misfortune.

As he strolls through the house, he watches their numerous months there, watching them have supper, take piano lessons, and observe Christmas. One night, C’s apparition makes his nearness known to the kids by going inside their storage room and opening it up. In spite of the fact that it appears the young lady can’t see him, the kid can. Profoundly exasperated by weariness and depression one night, he starts tossing plates from their organizer and gleams the lights, terrifying them. In the end, they move from the house as well.

C’s apparition at that point watches the following tenants of the house set up a gathering, tuning in to one of the visitors (Will Oldham) go on an agnostic thesis about humankind’s aggregate endeavors to guarantee their heritage on earth, and how regardless of how hard our endeavors to attempt and protect that inheritance are, it will be in vain when the world in the end closes and the universe falls on itself once more. The partygoers see the lights starting to flash. After some time, the house has now turned out to be surrendered and abandoned. As C’s apparition keeps attempting to pick at the corner in the divider, he at last starts to haul the paper out, just to be occupied by a bulldozer that levels both his home and the house having a place with the other phantom. As they remain upon the vestiges, the other phantom says that she doesn’t think whoever she’s sitting tight for is coming, making her figure underneath her sheet vanish, leaving only her sheet. C’s phantom watches on as a high rise is based on the establishment where his home used to be, strolling around it from its development to its consummation. Strolling to the rooftop, he sees an enormous, cutting edge cityscape where his neighborhood once stood. He strolls to the edge of the building and dives off the side to the base.

After awakening, C’s phantom ends up in a prairie where nineteenth century pioneers are setting up camp. The following morning, C’s apparition looks as the youthful little girl among them awakens, composes on a bit of paper and conceals the paper underneath a stone. All of a sudden, he hears the sound of whooping Native Americans out yonder, and after turning back, he finds that the pilgrims have all been butchered. He looks at the cadaver of the girl as it disintegrates and the land and grass starts concealing her. He holds up until he’s by and by inside his old home, similarly as an alive C and M are moving into it. He watches their whole relationship play out before him while they live in the house. One night, C’s apparition sits on the piano in the family room, delivering the blast that he had heard when he was alive. In the end, he looks as M moves from the house at the end of the day as the other C (now additionally a phantom) watches her leave. He at that point comes back to the edge of the divider and figures out how to haul the note she deserted from it. After opening it and perusing what she composed, C’s figure vanishes and leaves his now disposed of sheet behind.
