After the death of their two children, Dr. Chris Nielson (Robin Williams) and his wife Annie (Annabella Sciorra) find continuing their lives fraught with difficulties, especially for Annie. When Chris dies and goes to Heaven he meets Albert (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and discovers that Heaven is even more wondrous than anything he could have imagined. However, Chris's death is the last straw for Annie and in her madness commits suicide and journeys to a place very different from Chris. On discovering Annie's misfortune, Chris forces Albert to enlist the help of The Tracker (Max von Sydow) and together they journey into the depths of despair to discover the destiny of Annie's soul and attempt a rescue.
