An orphanage burns on a dusty street as the Angel of Music observes singing. The song continues although he has relocated to a rowdy party at a mansion. Tess and Monica, unseen, are chagrined byb the excess as the host, Kevin Greeley, a carouses with friends. His father, Edward, confronts him but angirly exits. Kevin glimpses Monica in a mirror, but is gone when he turns around. As Edward ponders how to handle his spoiled son, Andrew appears, announcing God has granted the human one hour to set his affairs in order before his death. During that time, Edward opens his Bible, and dies while reading it. Days later, George is stunned that Edward left him one million dollars and a Bentley. Kevin, however is furious to receive only his possessions until attorney Tess informs him that he must locate Joseph Wells to claim the rest of his inheritance. He agian sees Monica's reflection in the mirror, but this time, she is there. She knew Edward and will help Kevin find Joseph Wells, but he must make the trip without his father's help or influence. Carrying only his prized guitar, Kevin hitchhikes and is eventually picked by Ruth. She too knew his father and eventually drops Kevin off at a diner. There he meets Sam, after he is forced to wash dishes because he has no money. Sam also knew Edward and teaches Kevin to take pride in his work. Ruth again appears and gives Kevin a ride to Joseph Wells, Texas. They encounter the Angel of Music, and Kevin donates the dollar he mysteriously found in his pocket. Kevin also meets Andrew in a nearby blues club but refuses to sell his guitar. At the bank, he is livid when Monica and Tess give him his inheritance, Edward's Bible. After Kevin storms out mid-revelation, the angels summon a specialist, Phil, the angel of Restoration. Phil tells Kevin to thank God for what he has rather than blame him for what he doesn't have. Finding an abandoned baby, Kevin learns Edward grew up in the town orphanage, which is why most of his estate was left to the "children of Joseph Wells." Kevin sells his guitar and decides to stay in town and take care of the baby by working at the orphanage and the blues club.moreless
