The film Down To Earth is about Lance Barton, a confident and funny comedian. Lance performs in the Apollo but got booed offstage. He vows to do better next time. However, he got killed on the way home because he got distracted by a girl named Sontee. When he arrived in heaven, King and Keyes informed him that he died ahead of schedule, and they are there to help him get back to Earth.

The angels found him a body that belonged to the freshly killed Charles Wellington. At first he did not want the body until he saw Sontee demanding Charles’ presence. Only the angels can see him as Lance, while everybody else see him as Charles.

Charles was viewed as a snobbish billionaire, is now a homely philanthropist. He successfully gets Sontee to fall in love to Charles, with Lance inside, through his humor and wits. Lance also wants to redeem his last comedic attempt.

Charles was killed once again by an assassin hired by his wife. Because of this, Kind and Keys have to find another body that Lance can reside. They found a Joe Guy.

Lance, in Joe Guy’s body, successfully performs at the Apollo. However, King and Keyes re-emerge to have a final word with Lance. The angels inform Lance that after their conversation he will not remember anything. His memories with Lance, Charles, Sontee, Whitney, King and Keyes will be erased. This was huge setback for Lance who is already making great progress with his comedy career and Sontee. However, the angels said that those are the rules. After the conversation was over, Joe Guy emerges with no recollection of anything.

Joe Guy still retains the characteristics of the old Lance. In the end Joe Guy reconnects with Whitney and successfully gets Sontee to fall in love with him again.
