The bright headlights from the muscle car blind James St. George — no time to get out of the way. The 23-year-old braces for impact, but instead of pain, he falls into a confusing, nauseous trance and is awoken by a teenager dressed like a surfer. The stranger says his name is Chuck and explains that he’s a spirit guide.
Together, they cross over to the other side where they meet God and learn that death is not the end of the soul’s journey. God offers James three choices that will dictate his fate in the afterlife and teach him about love, understanding, forgiveness and compassion. Seeking a new adventure, James chooses a most arduous task, one that transports him into a place of darkness and despair where he must learn to outsmart evil, while acting as a spirit guide for the man who killed him.
Angels on the Bridge explores the idea that there’s a lesson in all of life’s experiences and seeks to answer the question: why do bad things happen to good people?
