Heaven Spent

A lonely young man, Micah Cohen, considers suicide, only to be visited by an “agent for the afterlife” who mistakenly thinks he’s already gone through with it. Rejuvenated by his new lease on life, Micah's determined to set things right…but when he discovers that Death itself is hunting him down, it’s up to Micah’s guardian angel – a rookie -- to save him. A dark reverse spin on Capra’s IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE.
