    The story follows the death of a churchgoing Chicago woman, Eve, who is gunned down on a cold winter night, and her subsequent revival as a ghost in Oak Wood Cemetery on the South Side of Chicago. The cemetery is a place where spirits and ghosts spend their time, waiting for their final transition to either heaven or hell. While Eve whiles away her time in Oak Wood, her best friend, who is another spirit, stops by and informs her of what’s been happening in the living world since she died, including that her daughter is now living a life replete with sin under the control of the neighborhood pimp.
