    • Synopsis
    • Paula is a top plastic surgeon, owner of the world-famous beauty clinic "Image Beauty Solutions". Rich, successful and arrogant, she has always lived for her job and her own vanity. Now, on the eve of her 50th birthday, she has just realized her career-long goal: finding the definitive cure for cellulite.
      Eager to try her own masterpiece and overly confident, she uses herself as the first human test subject for the miracle drug - and it works! Or at least, so it would seem...
      In a matter of hours, right in the middle of her birthday bash, she starts feeling a strange side effect to the drug: a very sudden, augmented PMS. She flips out during her party, starts acting insanely, and accidentally dies falling down a flight of steps in the process.
      Paula wakes up and discovers, to her dismay, that she is now dead. Her perfect body, result of years of cosmetic work and her most prized possession, was now useless as she was stuck on earth as an invisible ghost until she could finish her one last mission: stop her scheming business partner from releasing the harmful drug to the public - and making millions off of it.
      Daniel is a phony psychic - or at least he thinks he is until he meets Paula as she stumbles into his business: the "House of Miracles", a psychic center where Daniel has been conning people for years.
      Through Daniel, Paula must contact her daughter, Alice. Alice is 25, and the very opposite of Paula: an intellectual dead against the beauty industry with a strained relationship with her mother in life. The unlikely trio must then help them stop the drug from falling into the hands of every hopeful woman out there in a hilarious comedy - and on the way, learning a think or two about how beauty is more than just skin deep.
