In the 1990 film Mr. Destiny, Jim Belushi plays Larry Burrows, a mid-level executive who is perpetually unhappy with his life. He struggles with the fact that he never achieved his childhood dream of playing professional baseball and is constantly looking for a way to make his life better. One night, while drowning his sorrows at a local bar, he meets a mysterious man named Mike (played by Michael Caine), who presents him with an unusual proposition. Mike claims to be a celestial being who has the ability to change people's destinies, and he offers to show Larry what his life would have been like if he had hit the winning home run during a memorable high school baseball game.

Larry wakes up the next morning to find that his entire life has been transformed. He is now married to his high school sweetheart Ellen (played by Linda Hamilton), a woman he never had the courage to ask out in his original timeline. He is also the wealthy owner of the company he used to work for, and his baseball dreams have come true as well.

However, as Larry begins to settle into his new life, he realizes that everything is not as perfect as it seems. While he has achieved all of his dreams, he has lost touch with the people who were important to him in his original life, including his wife and daughter. He starts to wonder if his new life is really worth sacrificing everything he had in his original timeline.

As he grapples with this decision, Larry starts to see more and more glimpses of his old life in his dreams, and he becomes increasingly conflicted. He ultimately must decide whether to stay in his new life, or go back to his old one and try to make the most of what he has.
