Eddie is a war veteran who feels trapped in a meaningless life of fixing rides at an amusement park. On his 83rd birthday he is killed in a tragic accident as he tries to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakes in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a destination, but a place where your life is explained to you by five people.
