Extended synopsis:

A ghost girl Ellie comes back to the neighbourhood every year on Halloween night. However, communicating with her only friend, the moon, she feels increasingly lonely as each year passes and questions her purpose for being brought back to the town yearly. She mingles with the trick or treater children on the streets, wanting to be a part of them, but after each interaction, realizing that she can only be a part of their lives from the outside. Just as she was about to continue down the street, she notices a little girl by the window in the house across the street. She signals to Ellie to come over. Confused and thinking that she was calling someone else around her, she realizes that the little girl is indeed calling for her. She floats over and communicates with the little girl, Dahlia. Dahlia tells her that her dog is dying and wants Ellie to take care of it. However, upon hearing this, Ellie feels the pressure and unwanted responsibility of doing so and rejects Dahlia’s request.
