Heaven follows the life of an unaccomplished drama writer who is accidentally taken to heaven, where he meets up with the icons of the art world including Jim Morrison, Marylin Monroe, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson. He tries to find himself in the celebrity company and struggles with the repercussion of being included in that circle.
