    Monica meets Tess in the desert, at the same bus stop where she began her job as a case worker. It is from this, the place where her first assignment began, where she will take on her final one. If all goes well, Monica will advance from caseworker to supervisor. She can't wait to get started, so that she can start work as supervisor at Tess's side. But Tess tells her that it won't be that way. She's put in for a new position as well, back in heaven sitting at God's feet and singing his praises. She hasn't been training Monica to be her partner, she's been training her to be her replacement. Monica is upset to hear the news, but her goodbye is cut short by the arrival of the bus. She climbs aboard, wondering where she is going and what her assignment will bring. On board she meets Zack, a traveling handyman, seemingly without a care in the world. She asks where he's going and he tells her he's going where she is, Ascension, Colorado, the bus's final stop. When they finally arrive in Ascension, they are greeted by a feeling that something is missing. It doesn't take them long to discover that thing that it absent, is the children. There are no kids here, but there is plenty of evidence that they once were. Bikes lay discarded beside the diner, toy trucks, lie in the grass by the school, and joyless adults wander through their days pondering the emptiness in their lives. Two years prior all of the children were killed when the school's boiler exploded. Now, the only thing the adults want more than to forget, is justice for the person responsible. It turns out there was a witness to the whole thing, Joey Machulis, one of Monica's former assignments. And he's not the only familiar face in town. His brother, Wayne, is the sheriff, and Sophie, a formerly homeless acquaintance of Monica's is here too. Also, Mike, a big time lawyer who Monica saved during her search and rescue days, is the Mayor. Knowing that there is no such thing as coincidence, Monica tries to figure out what she is doing here and how she can help. The answer soon becomes clear, as Carver, an out town developer, claims to have seen Zack somewhere before. In fact, it was by the school the day of the explosion. Such a small claim, from an unreliable source, is all the grieving townspeople need to become incensed. While there is little justification, their small world turns on its end, and suddenly everyone is looking at Zack as a killer of children. Monica is astounded.moreless

    Stan and his friends are fascinated by the crazy old man who lives on their street. He's an inventor, a mad scientist, and he's building cars that run on chicken droppings...or so they say. There is also speculation that he is experimenting on dead bodies in his basement, but the truth is that Emmett Rivers is working hard to free the world from its dependence on oil. He is fashioning a device which, when it is finished, will convert hydrogen into energy. It will run on water. Of course, there are a few hitches. Emmett so far, is unable to get the machine just right. Everything is theoretically working, but it's just a little off. It's nothing a few months of fine work can fix. Unfortunately he might not get that chance. Monica has arrived, as an IRS agent, to look into Emmett's tax deductions. While she is there, Stan finally gets up the courage to sneak into the house and see just what the crazy old man is working on. But elsewhere, Carl Northram, an oil magnate, has been informed of Emmett's work via assignment, it is her job to bring the genius to the man who can put his ideas to work. But When Gloria arrives to express interest in the invention, and negotiate with Emmett regarding its sale, she is rebuffed. Emmett is angry that they weren't interested until he'd spent 20 years of his life working on it. Now, when it is so near to completion he is afraid that they will swoop in and steal the credit. Gloria assures him that no one is swooping, but Emmett is unwilling to budge. He sees the accomplishment as a way of living on, something he won't do himself; he is dying of stomach cancer. When Gloria is gone, Monica and Stan, who Emmett has taken a liking to, try to convince him that it is time to share his genius with the rest of the world. So when Gloria returns with Carl, Emmett accepts their offer and sells the nearly finished machine for 1/2 a million dollars. Now he can finally relax and seek treatment for his ailment. But all is not as it seems, Carl has no interest in helping the world, he has bought Emmett's invention solely for the purpose of destroying it. Gloria is devastated by her part in this and returns to bear tidings to Emmett, Monica and Stan. They are disheartened, especially Emmett, who realizes that his work will not be rebuilt in time. "But it will be rebuilt." Monica assures him. He just needs to teach Stan, and his work will lilve on. Emmett does as requested, and realizes that sharing his ideas with even one more person, is better than keeping it locked in a basement, hoping for immortality.moreless

    Star hockey player, Jeff McHenry, a senior at the exclusive St. Crispin's prep school enjoys the privileged lifestyle afforded to him by his father's wealth. With his team on the heels of the playoffs and his father's financial support to attend Harvard, Jeff's future seems secure. Jeff's arrogance fuels rivalry with teammate, Chase Jennings, and draws alliances from both on and off the ice rink. When Jeff's substitute History teacher, Andrew, tries to teach his class about the St. Crispin's Day speech from Shakespeare's Henry V, it is clear that Jeff has never understood or practiced the humility that made Henry V a great leader. Jeff's mettle is tested when a bad investment bankrupts his father. Jeff painfully accepts his transfer to a public school, but is allayed by his father's assurance that his college tuition is safe.

His disparaging remarks about the last placed team, alienates the players. That night, Jeff attends a St. Crispin's house party and discovers that he is no longer part of that social circle. Even more distressing, is the circulating news that his father's financial troubles have forced him to tap into his college fund. Realizing his need for an athletic scholarship, Jeff joins the Eastside team in the hopes of impressing a Harvard scout. Jeff's rigorous and punishing practices are in opposition with Monica's good-natured coaching. Monica questions Jeff's incessant determination to go to Harvard and learns that it is part of his fulfillment of his deceased mother's dream. Jeff dismisses Monica's advice that his character determines who he is, not the name of his school rival. At last the game of the year, Eastside vs. St. Crispin, Jeff faces off with his school rival, Chase. Jeff tells his teammates that their only chance of winning is for him to shoulder the offense. Jeff's talents and selfish play are unable to overcome the dominating St. Crispin's team. With only a few minutes left and Eastside is being shut out 3-0, Jeff's frustration mounts. When Chase insults Jeff, a fight erupts and the two players receive penalties. A defeated Jeff buries his face in his hands only to look up to discover the entire arena has come to a standstill.

Monica elaborates on the majesty of God's heavens and it is revealed that the angels are actually sitting in planetarium hosted by Andrew. Across the city, 15 year-old Lucy Baker sits in her room looking at the sky, where only the moon can be seen above the city lights. Erica Baker joins her daughter and the two share a moment pondering what or who created the universe. "It's just luck," responds Lucy's father and science teacher, John. Lucy is not convinced that her atheist father is right. At school, tension runs high between father and daughter, who is barely maintaining a C average. John reminds Lucy that her grade hinges on her next research paper and she needs to come up with a topic. Despite her struggles in science, Lucy excels in Monica's English class. Monica encourages Lucy's growing curiosity of how the universe was created by allowing Lucy to combine her research for her English essay and her science project. Lucy is pleased that her science paper to prove the existence of God will antagonize her father. John dismisses Lucy's idea as mindless speculation and demands she pick another topic or fail the assignment. Their differences are momentarily set aside when Erica informs them that her ovarian cancer, which was in remission, has returned. John is confident that medical science will successfully get them through it again. As Erica's health gradually declines, she begins to question her own beliefs. Lucy goes to the planetarium to contribute her research despite her father's objections. There Andrew suggests that she look into Intelligent Design Theory, which claims that the universe is too complex and precise to be a random coincidence. Andrew asks Lucy "if you discover a watch...sitting on a tree stump. Would you assume that all these little springs and wheels and gears fell out of the sky and landed together just right to make this watch?" The next day, Lucy discovers from a classmate that the survival rate for a second bout with ovarian cancer is practically zero. Overwhelmed at the prospect of losing her mother, Lucy confides to Monica her feelings of helplessness. Monica consoles Lucy, explaining that her name means "bringer of light," and that her mother is still alive and needs her now more than ever. Lucy is determined to prove the existence of God to comfort her ailing mother. Lucy turns in her two papers, but is distraught that her mother doesn't find the inspiration she is looking for in Lucy's science paper. Monica suggests that Lucy has given her mother the wrong paper to read. Lucy, with Nurse Tess's help, takes her mother outside the city limits to see the stars. Erica reads Lucy's English essay, which states how grateful Lucy is for the beauty of the universe...grateful to God.

    Monica and Tess are driving through North Carolina in search of their next assignment when they get pulled over by a traffic cop and hauled into court. The presiding judge turns out to be Andrew, who shows no special treatment and sentences them to "community service." He assigns them to assist two members of the community whose feud (dating back forty years) has become a nuisance to the court, in the hopes that the extra assistance will enable to work out their differences out of court. Tess assists Pastor Robert Hannigan who is preparing for the arrival of his 12 year-old grand nephew, Brian,. Meanwhile, Monica assists Hannigan's neighbor and chief nemesis, Dr. Lucy Scribner, who submits a written critique of his weekly sermon. Monica and Tess ultimately realize the purpose of their assignments has more to do with Brian than the two feuding adults. Lucy strikes a rapport with Brian and explains the reason she became a doctor had to do with her having polio as a child. She was told by doctors that she would never walk again. Tess proceeds to tell Monica the story behind Robert and Lucy's feud which began as a tale of teen romance. But when Robert told his parents of his plans to marry Lucy, they objected, fearful that polio was somehow contagious. Robert's parents saw to it that their marriage plans were thwarted and sent him away to live with relatives, leaving Lucy with a broken heart. In time, a vaccine was developed and Lucy went on medical school. Meanwhile, back in the present, Lucy and Robert square off on opposite sides of a local issue over the placement of a stop sign at a busy intersection. Lucy is vehemently opposed to the stop sign which she feels would open the floodgates to developers and would encroach on their city's small town charm. Lucy and Robert go at it, using the public forum as a means to vent their personal agenda until Brian finally cries out against these two adults behaving like children. He then runs off and is struck by a car at the very intersection they've been debating. At the hospital, Robert and Lucy learn that Brian suffered damage to his spinal cord and will be paralyzed for the waist down. Lucy starts to feel hopeless, but Monica reminds Lucy how she proved doctors wrong when they told her she would never walk again. Lucy goes on the internet and locates a new drug that could reverse the effects of the paralysis, with the cavest that it be administered within 72 hours of the injury. Unable to convince Robert and the attending physician that this is Brian's best option, Lucy goes to Judge Andrew to obtain a court order granting her permission to go over Robert's head to administer the drug, but Andrew denies the request. With time running out, Tess finds a way to get through to Robert by showing him how his feud with Lucy flies in the face of the very gospel he preaches, reminding him of the Biblical passage of coming to the altar having been reconciled to those you have wronged. With moments to spare, Monica and Tess act as referees, showing them how their feud is holding a little boy hostage and how this grudge grew out of silence and lack of communication. With the key to the past finally unlocked, Robert and Lucy make their peace in time to administer the drug, and begin to heal the wounds of the past.moreless
