Almost Heaven

Deutschland 2004/2005, Spielfilm

Inhalt

According to her doctors, country singer Helen only has a short time left to live. But before her seemingly inevitable demise, she wants to fulfil a life′s dream: To give a concert at the legendary Bluebird Café in Nashville.
When she is actually invited to perform in Nashville, Helen accidentally boards the wrong plane, and instead of travelling to the US, she winds up in Kingston, Jamaica. There, she makes the acquaintance of con artist Rosie, who agrees to take Helen to the airport in Montego Bay, where the flights to North America depart. But their trip takes some unexpected turns– therefore prolonging Helen′s stay in Jamaica.
