It has been years since Ned Stevens, a charming self-made success, lost his wife Kate to cancer. Yet he still can’t let go of her memory and move forward with his life, despite the efforts of his daughter Liz who thinks it’s time Ned stopped “talking” with his dead wife and started dating again. But when Liz brings home a surprise — a new boyfriend from college — Ned finds that his comfortable world is turned upside down as Liz tries to divert his attention to Carol, an attractive single woman who lives in Ned’s neighborhood. Will Ned accept that his little girl is falling in love and can he open up his own heart once more to the potential of falling in love with another woman?
“Heaven Is Waiting” is a sweet romantic comedy that will entertain and hopefully inspire your family to live life each day with a renewed hope. The past can often hold both good and bad memories. Ned remembers his wife so well that he can’t seem to move on without her. Even though she passed on three years ago, he still carries on conversations with her as if she were still here. When his daughter falls in love with a boy from college, and brings him home, Ned must face the fact that he must let his precious daughter go — and his wife too.
This film is touching and funny as well as thoughtful. It portrays a Christian family with values and morals but isn’t preachy. Dove is pleased to award this moving picture our “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
