Ellie & Abbie (& Ellie’s Dead Aunt)
School captain Ellie is seriously crushing on her rebellious classmate Abbie. Determined to ask her first love to the formal, Ellie devises a plan to go public with the invitation, but before she can go through with it, her dead aunt Tara reappears from beyond the grave. Believing she’s been brought back from the dead to be Ellie’s fairy godmother, Tara dishes out unwanted dating advice based on her life as an out lesbian in the 80s. Ellie & Abbie is an endearing and heartfelt romantic comedy that appeals to all generations and genders by bundling humor, heart and history into a beautifully crafted narrative.
