Plot synopsis

The Trevaller family move from the city to a new house in a small country town called Waterloo Creek - a town full of weird and wonderful characters. The house they move into is haunted by the ghost of Elly, a young girl. Elly befriends the Trevaller's son Jools, who tries to help solve the mystery of her murder. In the final episode it is revealed that Elly was never murdered but had died in a tragic accident and stayed in the world of the living in order to clear the name of the man suspected of her murder. Finally having achieved her peace she passes to the afterlife and is reunited with her loving family whilst Jools meets Eloise, a living girl identical to Elly who is perceived either as her reincarnation or as a sign to him that the world is full of human girls just like her.
