Based on the bestseller by Mitch Albom (Tuesdays With Morrie), The Five People You Meet in Heaven takes up where It’s A Wonderful Life left off.
An elderly amusement park maintenance man, Eddie, is trapped in purgatory and the only way out is to confront five people from his past. Unfortunately, dark secrets from his service in the Philippines begin to haunt him.
Everything is being created by himself, because of the wrong he did in the life he just ended. In the end, many lessons are being learned, and most of them have to do with forgiveness, of himself of others and by others.
