Episode Summary

Pop singer Melissa McCammon is about to commit suicide. With her once meteoric career at a standstill and her husband cheating on her, she sees no hope. Then she encounters Rachael, an ardent fan from the future. Rachael is a time traveler -- and an uninvited tourist in Melissa's body. She persuades Melissa to give life a second chance, but in the process, she changes history. Now, authorities from the future want Melissa dead and will resort to anything -- including murder -- to preserve their version of the past.moreless

      • [Closing Narration]
        Control Voice: In the long view of history, what difference will any of our lives make? The true measure of a life is not how many people know our names when we die... but whether we touch the lives of others.

      • [Opening Narration]
        Control Voice: We are told, everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes. But in these times when 'celebrity' is the drug of choice, the truly famous will tell you... fifteen minutes is rarely long enough.

    • NOTES (2)

      • The two songs featured in this episode are actually two of Sheena Easton's songs: "Dance Away the Blues" and "Flower in the Rain". Both songs appear on her album My Cherie (1995).

      • This episode stars famous singer Sheena Easton in a role quite similar to her career. Here she plays a famous singer uncapable of creating something to rise to the level of her first hits.
