This is a remix of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol with a Valentine's twist. When Ben's girlfriend, Marly, dies, he feels his life is over and the prospect of Valentine's day without her fills him with bitterness. But then Marly arrives - or at least, her ghost does - along with three other spirits. Now Ben must take a journey through Valentines past, present and future - and what he learns will change him forever.
