A first-year high-school drama teacher arrives at school to find her auditorium haunted. Against this backdrop, a terminally ill girl falls in love for the first time with a boy from an unstable home, as she works against time to stage a tender, autobiographical play. A love-letter to high school theater, EDGAR explores the realms of the living, dead and dying with humor and grace.
