Mike Patterson, then-owner of Owens Valley ghost mining town Cerro Gordo, adores his wife Jody, from whom he inherits the ghost town. After her death his grief turns the town into a private place; he sits in their home atop the mountain letting the snow pile up around him and dreaming of the church he wants to build for her. He meets Lauren and the Studio and the church is built as part of a film shoot in Cerro Gordo. It is made as a movie theatre however – "The Cerro Gordo SIlver Screen" – and the region's ghosts reincarnate for a grand opening party.
