Afterlife of the Party Plot
Cassie likes to party to the point that she’s obsessed with it. Wherever she goes, she likes to make her presence feel. On the contrary, her best friend Lisa is an introvert who’s not used to the outgoing activities of her friend.
During her 25th birthday, Cassie takes Lisa to a bar and as usual parties like crazy. Lisa tries to convey to her friend that there’s more to partying in life. However, this statement doesn’t fit well with Cassie and she calls her jealous since she can’t do things like her.
The next day, Cassie visits Lisa to apologize, however, she doesn’t show any reception. An angry Cassie destroys Lisa’s jigsaw puzzle and leaves. Fast forward to her bathroom, Cassie stumbles, falls, hits her head, and dies. But wait, her spirit is still present on the Earth with some unfinished business.
Val, who’s the guardian angel of Cassie informs her that she’s stuck between heaven and hell. She still has an unfinished business left on Earth, that’s why she can’t go to either place. Cassie has to make up with people that Val provides until the time runs out, or else she will go to hell.
The first person on the list is Lisa. To Cassie’s relief, Lisa is capable of seeing her friend’s spirit so she can interact with her. She left bad terms with her and now she has to make up in some way. To do this, she tries to get along with her crush Max.
She succeeds in that task. Next, she prepares her for an interview at Dr. Redding’s. She cracks the interview and lands a great job. Like that, Cassie manages to cross the first person off the list.
Cassie’s father went into depression after the demise of his daughter. Even though he wasn’t able to see Cassie’s spirit, he was able to feel it. To uplift her father, firstly, Cassie brought motivation to Howard’s life by proposing to continue his Yoga and meditation.
Next, she booked him a date with Emma, so that he could fulfill the gap left by her mother Sophia. Cassie was able to reconcile with her father by moving him out of his toxic life.
The last person on the list was Sophia, the mother of Cassie. With the help of Lisa, Cassie learned that Sophia left her and Howard because of her selfishness and simply because she wasn’t ready to take responsibility. Cassie felt fury towards her mother, but accepted her apology. Even after reconciling with all three, there was still something left.
