Country music legend Dolly Parton brings her sunny charm to this heartwarming film. When hard-living lounge singer Ruby Diamond (Parton) dies in a car accident and meets Saint Peter (Roddy McDowall) at the gates of heaven, the angel informs her that she must return to Earth to perform a selfless deed in order to gain admittance. Disguising herself as a nanny, Ruby soon edges her way into the joyless family life of workaholic widower Ben Bartilson (Brian Kerwin) and his children Sarah and Matthew, hoping to both heal the grief-stricken family and earn her heavenly wings. Punctuated by Dolly's musical numbers, Unlikely Angel is an affirmation of the holidays, love, and family.
Includes 2 original songs by Dolly Parton: "Unlikely Angel" & "Whatcha Tryin' to Do to Me?".
