Eddie is a lonely, bitter war veteran who feels like his life as a repairman at the Ruby Pier Amusement Park has been meaningless. On his 83rd birthday, an accident on one of the rides imperils a five-year-old girl, and Eddie risks his own safety in front of a horrified crowd as he attempts to save her life. Then, after a blinding flash of light and silence, Eddie reawakens in an unfamiliar place called Heavenâ€¦ but he's not alone. Five people -- each of whom shares with him a fateful and significant connection --have been waiting to meet him.
