In 1999, New York cop John (Caviezel) finds he can communicate with his dead father (Quaid) in 1969 through dad's old ham radio. Since his father was a fireman who died in a warehouse fire almost exactly 30 years ago, John decides to tell him how not to get killed. This leads to changes in the present (messing with the past always does), including the murder of John's mother by a serial killer. Father and son must solve and prevent the killings in the past and the present using their respective skills and, amazingly, John's knowledge of the 1969 World Series. It's all very convoluted and ridiculous (especially the ending), but the underlying sentiment, and the fine work of Caviezel and Quaid make it easy to suspend disbelief and go along for the ride.
