In the 1946 film A Matter Of Life And Death, David Niven stars as RAF bomber pilot Peter Carter. With his crew either dead or parachuted out, his craft in flames and falling fast, Carter bails out without a chute. His miraculous survival allows him to pursue a fortuitous romance with a radio operator, with whom he shared what he thought were his last words. Agents in Heaven, however, soon discover that a mistake was made and a celestial trial threatens to revoke Carter’s new lease on life.
