An advertising executive, wanting to spend the night with a blonde he meets at the airport, gives his first-class ticket to a stranger. The plane crashes, killing everyone on board. Filled with guilt and remorse, our hero turns to drink, eventually ending up in rehab. After getting out, he decides to track down the widow of the man he gave his ticket to. When they meet, he is attracted to her and finds himself unable to tell her the truth. She, in turn, is still struggling to come to grips with what happened.

Ian Douglas: I think the general consensus between myself and the two women I saw the preview with, is that the film is at best only average. It is a romantic drama more than a comedy, and the two characters spend a lot of time lying to each other, when they don't actually need to. By doing so, they lose the audience's sympathy and respect, and we wonder what the heck is wrong with them.
