Storyline

The inspiring and provocative series is back for a second season tapping into the universal fantasy: to be given a second chance to fix an error of the past. Every episode features a guest star playing a flawed person who dies suddenly. Waiting for him on the other side are two celestial figures: a guide, Mr. Smith, and Judge Othniel. The person is given the chance to return to earth and to a time when he went astray. Guided by Mr.Smith, the character has three days to cajole his younger self to not make the same mistake. By changing history, he can alter the future and the course of other lives affected by him. It is not easy as it first appears because the character must overcome deep biases and character flaws. Mr. Smith, who doesn't remember his own life on earth and death, struggles to make sense of human nature and to unravel the mysteries of the Universe. But by guiding others, he hopes to earn his own second chance. Written by Betty Palik

A MUST see show !
21 September 2000 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best Canadian shows you will see on TV ! This show has cast one of the most impressive, young & talented kids in Toronto, Danielle Bouffard. Danielle plays the role of Angel Bryson at age 5 in this wonderfully well written TV series. You will love her in this show as much as you all loved her in the role of Mary in the TV series 'Amazon'. You may also remember Danielle as Sophie in the TV series 'Traders' and Katie Miller in the TV series 'Blue Murder'.
