Storyline

In 1958, Sam leaps into the body of Max Greenman, a New York City cab driver who runs over a pedestrian only to eventually learn that she's actually Max's guardian angel. Max is hoping to win his own cab driver's medallion in the contest his employer is running. But Al tells him that on the next evening, the last day of the contest and $50 short of winning his medallion, Max will be shot and remain comatose for the rest of his life. He knows exactly where - 43rd and Broadway - and when he will be shot so Sam's plan is just to avoid the location at all costs. While he avoids getting shot, another complication arises leading Max's father Lennie to take matters into his own hands. Written by garykmcd
