”Heaven Can Wait” tells the bittersweet story of Joe Pendleton, a boxer and pilot, who is mistakenly delivered to the afterlife by a new and inexperienced messenger, who nabs Joe’s soul from a plane crash that he was supposed to have survived.
When the messenger’s mistake is revealed, he is ordered to return Joe to his body on earth. Unfortunately, Joe’s body has already been cremated, forcing a search for a new body that Joe can live out the rest of his life in. …and so goes the plot, as we watch Joe try to get back on his path of destiny.
