Ghosted tells the story of a young boy from a small town in Oregon and his only and best friend, his dead uncle's ghost who is stuck in the attic. They hang out in this attic talking, smoking weed, and listening to old records. Both gay in a small town, though decades apart, their struggles were similar until a ghost from Christopher's past comes to save him.


"...incredible music and a beautiful love story that doesn't lean on the familiar."
