Summary
After miraculously surviving a jump from his burning plane, RAF pilot Peter Carter encounters the American radio operator to whom he has just delivered his dying wishes and, face-to-face on a tranquil English beach, the pair fall in love. When a messenger from the afterlife arrives to correct the clerical error that spared his life, Peter must mount a fierce defense for his right to stay on earth
