Nearly 20 years ago a young mother was shot during an apparent kidnapping and subsequent police chase. Now after all that time, the man in jail for the murder is about to be paroled. Jack has two missions - to bring the father and his daughter back together and to find out if any justice has been done by the conviction.

Notes: Filmed in 2005 along with other two movies in the second trilogy, Network Ten kept Ghosts on the shelf until late 2007 before quietly slipping it in on a Sunday once the official ratings period was over.

Liz's boyfriend Ian is played by Shaun Micallef, the co-creator of the Blackjack franchise and the writer of this movie.
