For Jamie (Chabert), a young woman balancing the hectic demands of her job as an ER nurse with the planning of her upcoming nuptials, the answer is clear: there is no afterlife.

After learning that her father died in a neighboring hospital room while she, unknowingly, tended to another patient, Jamie is inconsolable. Her grief overshadows her work, her relationship with her husband-to-be, and everything she used to love – until a terminally ill patient (Rowl ands) with incredible vitality and unswerving faith helps her cope with her sorrow, and leads her to change her life and her beliefs, in ways she could never have imagined.
