About the film:
In New York City, Joe Gardner dreams of playing jazz professionally while he works as a middle-school band teacher. He learns of an opening in a quartet at a music club. Impressed with Joe's piano playing, he is hired, but his excitement distracts him, and he falls down a manhole into the sewers and into another realm called the “Great Beyond” as a soul. Unwilling to die, he tries to escape but ends up in the “Great Before”, where counselors — all named Jerry — prepare unborn souls for life with the help of mentor souls. Each soul has a badge that grants passage to Earth once it is completely filled out with personality traits. Through a series of mishaps, Joe is mistaken for a mentor and becomes intertwined with a soul named 22 working on completing her badge for the next realm. Their adventure takes them through a discovery that a spark is not the soul's purpose, but indicates an intention to live. Joe's actions and inspiration restore 22 to normal and leads Jerry to grant him his ultimate return to Earth as a gesture of gratitude. He returns to his body on Earth and begins the next day committed to enjoying life.
“What follows is an absolute delight. It will make any viewer cherish the life they have and want to live it more fully, every single day, ideally with lots of laughs along the way.” Critic Stephen Romei, The Australian
