A man's love for his pregnant wife, Corinne Jeffries (Cybill Shepherd), is interrupted when a car accident sends him to heaven. He is reincarnated, however, and two decades later he is a writer named Alex Finch (Robert Downey Jr.).

This spells trouble for his past-life best friend, Philip Train (Ryan O'Neal), who is now pursuing Corinne.
