In 1973, Susie Salmon (Ronan) is tragically raped and murdered at the age of fourteen by a neighbor, George Harvey (Tucci), a serial killer of young girls and women. Although Susie is dead, her spirit lives on in heaven, where she is gradually getting accustomed to her new environment. She looks down sadly as her grief-stricken father, Jack, her mother Abigail, and her siblings, Lindsey and Buckley, try to come to terms with their horrible loss.

Susie longs to comfort her family. She even brings her spirit down to earth to be near her loved ones. She aches for her father who feels her loss the most. Susie agonizes when she sees that her parents' marriage is suffering because Jack and Abigail are unable to share their grief with one another. Equally heartbreaking is Susie's regret at never being able to grow up and experience adult life with all of its possibilities.
