Holding himself responsible for an accident that resulted in tragedy, IRS man Ben Thomas (Smith) sets out to help seven strangers who become part of his redemption plan. What he doesn’t count on is that he begins to grow close to one of them, dying cardiac patient Emily Posa (Dawson).
A collage of strong scenes, dull bits, good filmmaking and a dissatisfying emotional payoff. A laudable attempt to tackle heavyweight subject-matter that ends up just being heavy weather.
