The problem is CJ’s mom, Gloria, decides to take CJ away. As Bailey’s soul prepares to leave this life for a new one, he makes a promise to Ethan to find CJ and protect her at any cost. Thus begins Bailey’s adventure through many lives filled with love, friendship and devotion. This is a drama rated PG (for thematic content, some peril and rude humor). It runs for 108 minutes. Show time is 1:15 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5. There is no charge, but a donation is appreciated for popcorn/snacks and beverages.
