After choking on a hero sandwich in her kitchen and suffering a dramatic near-death experience, Beth Harper - an absentee wife and mother - is revived and claims she can now talk to God. Her teenage daughter Emily is horrified and her husband Tom is skeptical. To make matters worse, Tom's ex-mistress Carly McKenna is in a coma after a close encounter with lightning in the Harper's front yard.
As Beth warms up to her new life, she strives to make amends to the people she has alienated over the years, including friends and neighbors Jenna Dennings and Maggie Tompkins. Despite everyone's initial hesitancy, Beth begins to win people over with her new positive attitude, cheerful optimism and unbridled love.
