Richard Lewis, an area manager in a contract catering company, means well but is harassed, overworked, stressed and, most of all, very badly organised. Work gets on top of him so badly that he has a heart attack and dies! St Peter, played by John Cleese, meets him at the Pearly Gates, shows him precisely what he has been doing wrong, and helps him delegate work and organise himself before returning him to earth to mend his ways.
