Sam leaps into the body of Joe Furlow, a stage actor who is living in New York City with the widowed - and somewhat older - Jane Lindhurst. Joe is an actor and a peace activist who encourages Jane to pursue her singing career over the objections of her adult son Neil who wants her to return to Cleveland. Al tells Sam that in two days time, Jane will in fact return home and live out a lonely existence. Sam realizes that Jane's music is the key to her happiness and her eventual success as a singer will determine her future life. Sam's first attempt at getting her to realize her potential ends disastrously but an unexpected opportunity provides both Joe and Jane with a great future.
