DYING TO GO HOME

Manuel is just an ordinary immigrant until he wakes up in a cemetery and discovers he's become a ghost. An old Chinese ghost living in the grave next door gives Manuel the bad news that he will only rest in peace if he can get his bones back to his native land. Worse yet, the only way to communicate with the living is through their dreams. It is true that there are benefits to being immaterial, but, despite the fun, nobody can hear him, nobody can see him and he is still Dying to Go Home...
