Storyline

Sam leaps into the body of Frank Bianca, a hairdresser in Los Angeles just as there's a shooting at the pharmacy next door. He lives with Laura and her son Kyle and he has just let the boy go next door to get some candy. The boy is unharmed but the pharmacist is killed and Kyle may be the only witness. Laura refuses to let Kyle cooperate with the police since her husband once witnessed a crime and was killed before he could give evidence. The detective on the case desperately wants to speak to Kyle but Sam can't convince Laura that they should do the right thing. Time is running out as Al tells him that both Kyle and his mom will be killed in the next 48 hours and he's there to stop it. Written by garykmcd
