Cassie (Justice) is a hard-partying social butterfly who suddenly dies in a freak accident. In the afterlife, she learns that she has five days to make amends with the people she left behind on Earth, including her best friend Lisa (Francis) and her grief-stricken parents (Garcia and Garcia), before she can be admitted to Heaven. Sent back to Earth, she attempts to right all her wrongs when she was alive…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice headlines this funny and sweet supernatural comedy that can be best described as Disney/Pixar’s Soul if it were made for the Hallmark Channel crowd.
