Returning to England from a bombing run in May 1945, pilot Peter Carter's plane is damaged and his parachute ripped to shreds. He has his crew bail out safely, but figures it is curtains for himself. He gets on the radio, and talks to June, a young American woman working for the U.S. Army Air Forces, and they are quite moved by each other's voices. Then he jumps, preferring this to burning up with his plane. He wakes up in the surf. It was his time to die, but there was a mix-up in heaven. They couldn't find him in all that fog. By the time his "Conductor" catches up with him twenty hours later, Peter and June have met and fallen in love. This changes everything, and since it happened through no fault of his own, Peter figures that heaven owes him a second chance. Heaven agrees to a trial to decide his fate. —John Oswalt british pilotyear 1945american womancamera obscuraheaven93 morePlot summaryPlot synopsisTaglinesNeither Heaven nor Earth could keep them apart!GenresComedyDramaFantasyRomanceWarMotion Picture Rating (MPAA)Rated PG for thematic elementsParents guide
