Joe is a boxer who is headed for a championship fight when he is killed in a plane crash. Unfortunately for Joe, he was not supposed to die in the crash, but was instead brought up to heaven too soon by an overeager angel. It is now up to Mr. Jordan, the angel's boss, to find Joe a new body and give him another chance to fight for the title. Joe meets an idealistic young woman to whom he is immediately smitten, and she gives him a reason to live beyond prize fighting.
