After her mother’s death, fourteen-year-old Sam takes over caring for her father and two younger brothers. Sam is an excellent student, always finishing her tasks on time. Rushing to school one morning, she gets into an accident and dies. When she arrives to “the other side”, a tactless angel named Martin offers her a choice between being reincarnated and the afterlife. She chooses the afterlife and is reunited with her mother Vera. But Vera is dismayed because Sam has not had a chance to experience life yet. When Sam changes her mind about wanting to live, she is left with no alternative but to start breaking the rules.
