Kaleche, a young amnesiac, finds herself stranded at the Kati Kati wilderness lodge – a holding place in the afterlife. The residents of Kati Kati occupy their time with escapist activities like games, barbecues or costume parties. They all follow the leadership of the charming Thoma, a dead functional alcoholic. When Mikey, the youngest resident, attempts to kill himself again, Kaleche realises that life at Kati Kati isn’t as idyllic as she thought. Discovering that transition to another space is possible, Kaleche begins to connect with King, a priest who died in a Post Election Violence revenge attack.
