Storyline

The family man Abe Dale is having lunch with his wife and son in a restaurant, when a man kills them in front of Abe and shoots himself in the mouth. A couple of days later, the grieving Abe misses his family and commits suicide ingesting many pills at home, but is rescued by his friend Marty Bloom and saved by the doctors. His Near Death Experience makes him see white light in some people and to hear Electronic Voice Phenomena, i.e., manifestations of voices of ghosts or spirits through static on electronic devices. Soon he discovers that the white light means that the person is going to die, and Abe saves three lives including his nurse Sherry Clarke. While watching a video recorded by his son, Abe finds that the killer had saved the lives of his wife and son three days before the murder. He investigates the incident and finds that when you save, you must kill; otherwise many innocents will die three days later. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I enjoyed it!
6 January 2007 | by jane-263See all my reviews

I admit I went to see this film simply because of Nathan Fillion, but I have to say I wasn't disappointed. He carries the character so well that I actually cried at the end ... and while the 'romance' aspect can only ever be hinted at (he is grieving for his wife and son, after all) it doesn't seem forced.

There is a Firefly/Serenity reference for fans that made me smile, but I won't spoil that! Suffice it to say it is a 'blink and you'll miss it' type of thing, but for those of us who are Browncoats, pretty obvious.

Maybe it does get a little convoluted in the middle, and we have seen the ghostly light and psychic wind before, but I never felt it was too long, and would recommend it to most (non robot) people!
