Family man Darryl Cozart disappears one night after work and his wife is frantic. The police believe it's a missing person's case. Local shopkeeper and psychic, Mary Ellen Rodrigues is visited by Darryl's spirit and describes his death to a police officer who comes into her shop. She tells him Darryl is dead, he's been shot, there's something around his neck and his body will be found in a marshy area. Darryl's spirit becomes Mary Ellen's constant companion and the driving force behind her own search for Darryl's body. Mary Ellen also reports that Darryl's spirit has been repeating the word "fickle". The case breaks open when Darryl's van is found with blood inside. Later, a trucker reports seeing a body not far from the road. It's Darryl and he's exactly as Mary Ellen described him. The new evidence leads the police to the killer--a jealous husband of one of Darryl's work colleagues.
