Storyline

A mean, loud-mouthed town bully is talking on the phone one night during a lightning storm when, in a freak occurrence, a bolt of lightning strikes a telephone pole, travels down the phone wires and hits him. He is declared clinically dead, but miraculously recovers shortly thereafter--with a completely new personality and, he claims, the ability to communicate with the dead.

Perfection as far as a TV movie gets, perfection of Eric Robert
20 March 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

As Eric Roberts (Dannion Brinkley) said with such perfect hair raising moment in the movie. "All I came to do was show them how to love, and all they did was beat me and reject me". Whew....what a line of perfection, this movie should be seen by all of a man who changes his tough guy ways to a man of peace and love, wanting to help everyone in his path. He is overcome with his afterlife experience as he was proclaimed dead for 28 minutes. He takes what he has learned and changes his life for the better, and from that point on the movie shows how people reject others who mean nothing but good. How they crucify those who only want to help !
