Not long afterwards, Franz dies in an unfortunate freak accident but his ghost refuses to leave town. Alpha is the only one who can see and hear him. In order for Franz to save his butcher shop and to protect Zita from the evil doings of her brother, he needs human assistance. And so, despite his xenophobic dislike of all things foreign, he asks Alpha to help him. And since Alpha is fond of Zita and also wants to help her, he agrees...
