On December 6 1973, fourteen year old Susie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan) is raped and murdered by a neighbor, George Harvey (Stanley Tucci), a serial killer of young girls and women. Susie finds herself in ‘the in-between’ – a Heaven-like place, observing her family as they grieve for her. She also watches her killer who, having covered his tracks successfully, is preparing to murder again. Her father Jack (Mark Wahlberg) is trying to figure out who murdered Susie. He has the pieces, but he can’t fit them together. Susie struggles to balance her desire for vengeance on Harvey and her desire to have her family recover from their loss.[4]
