Miriam, a librarian, is being haunted by a ghost. Laura and J.J. discover the apparition is Frederic – Miriam’s husband – who left her years ago. Miriam is shocked to discover Frederic is not dead, but is a filthy, drunken bum who has been using astral projection – out of body travel – to watch the woman he still loves but hasn’t dared approach. Ashamed at Miriam’s having seen him as he is, Frederic flees. To find him, Miriam induces her own out of body experience – a dangerous move. But Miriam’s demonstration of caring convinces Frederic of her friendship and forgiveness…and gives him motivation to put his life back in order.
