“The Good Place” follows Eleanor (Kristen Bell), a recently deceased woman who wakes up in the afterlife and is sent by Michael (Ted Danson) to ‘The Good Place’, a heaven-like utopia, in reward for her righteous life.

The film premiered on June 15, 2017, the opening night of the SOHO International Film Festival in New York City.
