Sam leaps into the body of a divorced mother of three whose eldest son, 15 year-old Kevin, will run away from home in the next 24 hours never to be seen again. Kevin is at that awkward age where he's embarrassed that he's still a virgin. His so-called friends decide to pull a practical joke on him leading him to run away. Sam and Al also learn that a young child can see both of them and have to come up with some pretty quick answers. Written by garykmcd
