Aging handyman Eddie (Jon Voight) dies himself while saving a small child from death. Soon after his final breath, he enters the pearly gates and is reunited with a quintet of people who played important roles in his life. Each dweller of heaven recreates a crucial event from Eddie's time on earth in order to answer his life's most troubling questions and give meaning to the tragedies he encountered, such as the early death of his beloved wife, Marguerite (Dagmara Dominczyk).
With wit and athletic genius, with defiant rage and inner grace, Muhammad Ali forever changed the American landscape. Fighting all comers, Ali took on the law, conventions, the status quo and the war -- as well as the fists in front of him. Ali both ignited and mirrored the conflicts of his time and ours to become one of the most admired fighters in the world. Forget, now, what you thought you knew.
