It is about three angels, Monica (Roma Downey), Tess (Della Reese) and Andrew (John Dye), who travel to Earth to help guide troubled individuals on Earth. A moral is taught with each episode as the main character of each episode struggles to make a tough life decision. The angels then swoop in to make sure the characters make the right choice.
