28-year-old Emily Hall (Dedee Pfieffer) is a bright and talented - but frustrated - novelist whose book constantly gets rejected by publishers. Her life goes into a tailspin when her boyfriend, Mike (Eric Close), breaks up with her; her best friend, Amber (Laura Leighton), suddenly packs up and moves to Mexico; and her psychic mother, Mona (Teri Garr), surprises her with the overwhelming news that her supposedly dead father is really an errand hippie photographer named Yogi (veteran actor Howord Hesseman), who's just arrived in town and wants to meet her! Faced with the problem-laden reality of her unsuccessful life, Emily lets her imagination take her down the road of wacky and ineffectual woys to kill herself. But, before she can find an acceptoble form of suicide, (no pain, no gore. no guts allowed), Emily finds herself thrown into a volunteer job at a local hospital where, with her faithful dog Sam, she visits sick and terminally-ill patients. One such patient, the ever-negative Mr Finch (Bert Remsen), seems to dislike Emily and Sam's constant intrusions into his solitary life, but with time and devotion Emily helps Mr Finch to see the beauty and value in the world around him. Their new-found relationship proves to be the turning point for Emily, and, with Mr Finch's help and support, Emily's faith in her own talent is restored. The Sky is Falling is a delightful movie that invites us all to take a look around us and pay attention to the many little things that make life truly worth living.
