Synopsis:

Nan wakes up in a subway car the day after Halloween with no clue how she got there. She’s made such an effort to get sober, to stop disappointing her family. This just isn’t like her (anymore). But she can’t remember what happened yesterday, and she’s wearing skeleton makeup and a too-small Halloween costume. Not good. Not good at all.

Nan is trying to put together the pieces, but her brain is mixing flashbacks from her previous life with the missing day. Did she really go back to her old friends and apparently her old ways? As she uncovers more and more of what happened on Halloween night, Nan begins to realize that this time she may have gone too far. She may be a walking ghost.
