Synopsis / Plot
San Francisco architect and family man Max Klein survives the plane crash that kills his best friend and undergoes a mystical transformation. Having overcome not only his fear of flying, but his fear of death, Max emerges from the crash in a blissed, beatific state -- and finds himself no longer able to engage in normal life. Convinced of his own messianic powers, Max pours all his energies into helping a young Hispanic mother who lost her baby in the crash overcome her grief and crippling guilt. In the process he grows further and further away from his devoted wife and young son until he risks losing them -- and himself -- all together.
