    Synopsis

    Brooks plays a self-absorbed yuppie who dies and goes to a pleasant and perfect afterlife/city to face judgement for his deeds while alive. There he meets the love of his death, Meryl Streep, with whom he hopes to spend eternity. As his defense attorney, Rip Torn presents his case, opposed by the great Lee Grant, both of whom illustrate their points by showing examples of Brookss life choices (mostly bad). With wit and charm, Defending Your Life makes many salient and at times quite thought-provoking points, such as that we all allow our fears to control our lives, and that we need to take certain risks in order to have a fulfilling life. So how does it come out? Does Brooks find redemption and true love? As they say, only heaven knows. So come see Defending Your Life and find out the answers. As you do, youll find yourself having an awful lot of fun.
