Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas is ideally cast as Ross Berger, an 83-year-old tycoon who owns a chain of fitness gyms. There is no room for God in Berger's life: he regards all "true believers" as weaklings, and even attributes his recent miraculous recovery from a stroke to his tireless exercise regimen rather than any sort of Divine retribution. Berger is especially contemptuous of his son Alan (Dennis Boutsikaris), a devout Jew who is busily preparing his own son Aaron's Bar Mitzvah. It is up to Monica (Roma Downey) and her fellow angels to make certain that Aaron (Shawn Pyfrom) follows in the footsteps of his pious father rather than his nonbelieving grandfather--but first, the Bergers must endure a devastating tragedy, one that will convince the bullheaded Ross Berger that there are many different kinds of strength and courage.
