A test on 'unity'.
Part of the Oblivion universe.

"The boy who had everything, and the girl who had nothing.
One who knew people's hearts. One who knew those that died.
Now, two become one."

Nova, a 20-year-old young woman who can interact with ghosts, finds herself being possessed by Dante, a 25-year-old dead man with the power of empathy and psychometry. The possession is suppose to last only 365 days - after which Dante will be sent to heaven to enjoy the paradise of the afterlife.

But now, for these 365 days, the two of total opposites are forced to work together to handle their new complicated lifestyle. In addition to learning how to live together, they also have to deal with assisting the dead, resolving issues of their social lives, and helping each other overcome their respective pasts.

All seems well, until Dante's powers begin to interact with strange dark entities that desire for Nova... A desire, born from a decades-old grudge...
