Based on his novel The Tempest Tales, The Fall of Heaven is about Tempest Landry, a street-wise young man living in Harlem who accidentally gets shot and unexpectedly finds himself at the Pearly Gates. When Saint Peter orders him to hell, the quick-witted Tempest refuses to go, believing he was justified in his actions. Due to the fact that no one has ever questioned Saint Peter's judgment before, a technical loophole forces Heaven to send Tempest back to Earth with an angel named Joshua to keep him out of trouble. However, now the fate of the afterworld lies in Tempest's hands: if he refuses to see the error of his ways, Heaven will collapse, thereby allowing hell and its keeper to reign supreme.
