Plot Summary
A fearless and suave greaser, Bobby Fantana (Lewis Smith) dies in a drag-racing accident and finds himself in a limbo realm. Advised by a guide named Rafferty (Richard Mulligan), Bobby eventually must go back to Earth and serve as a guardian angel. Bobby's assigned teen is Lenny Barnes (Jason Gedrick), a bright but nerdy kid who is lacking self-confidence and too shy to ask out his dream girl. As Bobby teaches Lenny how to be cool and confident, the two form a close bond.
