Years after his wife Kate (Melanie Nelson) died, Ned Stevens (Curt Doussett) still hates the idea of dating. After all, why would he start dating again when he has this daughter Liz (Brittany Peltier) to take care of? But when Liz brings a surprise home with her during a visit from college, Nedﾒs world is turned upside down. Can Ned accept that his little girl is falling for David (Kirby Heyborne), a practically perfect know-it-all who drives Ned crazy? As Ned tried to sabotage the relationship, Liz diverts his attention to Carol (Michelle Money) the beautiful single woman Ned sees jogging every morning. With Liz and Davidﾒs help, Ned will learn that with love, there are always second chances.
Heaven Is Waiting
Dove "Family-Approved" - Suitable for any age.
"Heaven Is Waiting" is a sweet romantic comedy that will entertain and hopefully inspire your family to live life each day with a renewed hope. The past can often hold both good and bad memories. Ned remembers his wife so well that he can't seem to move on without her. Even though she passed on three years ago, he still carries on conversations with her as if she were still here. When his daughter falls in love with a boy from college, and brings him home, Ned must face the fact that he must let his precious daughter go -- and his wife too. This film is touching and funny as well as thoughtful. It portrays a Christian family with values and morals but isn't preachy. Dove is pleased to award this moving picture our "Family-Approved" Seal for all ages.
