Description: Robert is one of life's losers. He works as a janitor at a giant corporation but dreams of something...less ordinary...while he writes what he hopes will be the Great American Trash Novel. Beautiful and sharp-tounged Celine, on the other hand, has never wanted for anything in her short and pampered life as the daughter of Robert's boss, Naville. The grossest indignity she can imagine is having her credit card rejected. Like Robert, she's bored. Under normal circumstances these two souls would never cross paths. But in the great Police Squad in the sky, someone has other plans. Celestial cops O'Reilly and Jackson have just been handed the toughest assignment of their career: bring Robert and Celine together, even if bones have to be broken in the process. It is an impossible proposition, utterly unlikely that these two could ever meet face to face, much less fall in love... until Robert kidnaps Celine.
