Johnny Smith (Anthony Michael Hall) once led the idyllic small-town life: working as a high school science teacher, a job which he loved; newly-engaged to a loving fiancÚ named Sarah Bracknell, a fellow teacher he'd known since childhood; and was a good son to his widowed mother. Johnny's life was nearly perfect ... until the day a near-fatal car crash left him in a deep coma for six years. By the time Johnny regained consciousness, he discovered that the life he once knew has completely changed forever: his mother passed away and Sarah married someone else. Even Johnny is not the same person he once was: since his coma, he possesses amazing psychic powers that allow him to see into the past and future through visions triggered by touch. Johnny continues to struggle to find his place in the world while also trying to cope with the knowledge that comes to him though his visions - visions that are both a blessing and a curse.
