A Matter Of Life And Death1945: Young airman Peter Carter jumps from a burning aircraft to certain death, exclaiming words for a girl he has never met – "I love you June. You are life and I am leaving you." An angelic blunder means Carter lives and finds the real June, but to remain alive he must take himself, and the heavenly authorities, to the Universal Court of Appeal.
