Danny Bishop is successful, happy, and the epitome of a good person. Young and energetic, there is no obstacle Danny believes he won't overcome. Life is his highway, one he designed. Everything is ideal until that road comes to a grinding halt and Danny finds out he has six weeks to live.
A routine physical shows an irregular heartbeat, and after further testing, Danny is diagnosed with fibro-cystic tumors on the heart. There is no cure, no way to stop the degenerating progress; the tumors are growing at a rapid and crushing rate. Snatched from his picture perfect world into a painful reality, Danny refuses to give into the conception of death. He insists until the moment he takes his last breath, he is alive will not die... at least not conventionally.
With limited time remaining, Danny must put his life in order. In doing so, he finds a mission; one considered impossible. However, to Danny, nothing is impossible. He sets out not to defeat the illness that threatens to conquer him, but rather defeat death by finding assurance that once he leaves the earth, he will be able to return. Using the help of a paranormal specialist, and drafting the aid of his best friend, Fr. Michael Craven, Danny begins a remarkable journey of living.
He must face his convictions in faith, discover the truth of death before he passes, while acquiring the answers that he needs: Does an "other side" exist? Is there a truly a heaven? And if so, can Danny not only get there, but map his way back so he can watch over the wife and daughter he loves so much?
