A Soapy Lovestory with Some Action
20 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie will appeal to people who like soaps and romances. It's a supernatural romance story.

Sean Craig is an undercover cop who ends up having a near death experience. During the NDE, he has a vision of a beautiful woman who needs his help. So, Sean decides to investigate and see if he can find her. But there's a problem, she's dead, or so he's told. He doesn't give up. And he eventually does solve the mystery.

It's really a good plot. It could be a better movie, but it's a satisfying romance. Anyone who has read a romance novel will probably like this. And it's worth spending the time watching it. Unlike most romance movies, this one really does pay off.
