When an uncle she’s never met commits suicide, Phyllis inherits his rural house and buys a one-way ticket to the middle of nowhere. She meets Bee, the executrix of the estate and as they sort through the house, Phyllis discovers her uncle’s secrets through the things he left behind. Perhaps her uncle was afraid of the same things that she’s been running from. A ghost story for the modern age, Dead People’s Things explores the tenuous relationship between death, intimacy, and the Holy Spirit.
