Alison (Patricia Arquette) has the gift of being able to talk to dead people. That comes in pretty handy when you’re trying to figure out how someone died! Alison’s connection to the afterlife is helpful for those around her but comes at the cost of being hyperaware of what may happen to her after she dies. The series explores how her frame of reference around life and death is completely altered by her abilities.
