Synopsis
George Bailey takes an experimental rocket faster than anyone has previously reached. He sees ghost-like creatures called the Evil Ones. Good spirits try to help George, but they can do little. The Evil Ones show him disastrous events like his friend dying in a fight, his fiance Mary falling off a cliff, and a devastating explosion at the airfield. George awakes from his unconscious state to find he survived the crash of his plane, but he is powerless to stop the events foretold to him by the Evil Ones.

Indexer Notes

Interesting to note the protagonist's name is George Bailey. This is the same as Jimmy Stewart's character from the film, It's a Wonderful Life. George Bailey's paramour in the film is also named Mary. This may be a coincidence, but it may be interesting to note for some.
