Plot Synopsis

Jane Bingum is a brilliant plus-size lawyer who's often overshadowed by her slimmer colleagues. Deb Dobkins is a shallow model-in-training who's used to being the center of attention. On one fateful day, both women die -- Jane is shot by a jilted husband and Deb is killed in a car crash. While Deb is waiting outside the pearly gates, the gatekeeper decides she isn't worthy and sends her back to Earth for a second chance. Inside the wrong body. Now that Deb is in Jane's body, both personalities must coexist and Deb must learn to live in a world where she can't rely on her external beauty.
