After a near-death experience, Sam is left with the ability to see ghosts. He befriends Carter, a ghost who lives in his house and who acts as an older brother. Carter tries to help Sam, but as a ghost he tends to do more harm than good. Shut-Ins is about growing up, having fun, and solving paranormal mysteries. Sam must constantly hide his ghostly abilities from his dorky friend, Simon, and his crush, Olive, the most popular girl in school. This becomes even more difficult when more and more crazy ghosts start to show up around town, along with a team of goofy ghost-hunters. Will Sam's life ever go back to normal? Is there such thing as "normal" when you can see ghosts?

    This is a truly funny show with some great acting. The characters are believable which is saying a lot when some of them are ghosts.
