"Walk-In" is a spiritual take on "My Dinner With Andre". Brandon Carpenter - committed capitalist and deal-maker - suffers a near fatal car crash on the day he is supposed to close the biggest money making scheme of his career. But the deal stalls when he is in a coma and pronounced brain dead. His wife keeps him on life support for 2 months which results in Brandon awakening from the coma perfectly healthy. It's a miracle. But is it? Brandon no longer seems like the same person. He has done a complete 180 degrees on his former life and is no longer interested in closing that big deal. His brother in law, and best friend, Neil is called in to talk some sense into him. But he soon finds out that Brandon claims he is a "walk-in" - an advanced soul from other realms who has taken over Brandon's body in order to bring the earth to a higher consciousness. Is Brandon insane? Delusional? Using spiritual ideology, the battle of wits to unravel this mystery is on.
