When Joe was hit by a bus, he knew who would meet him in the afterlife. Guess what? The jerk didn't show up.
Joe is eighteen-years-old and the star of his church's puppet play team. Then he gets hit by a bus and has emergency surgery, but he's not worried -- his hero will meet him at the Pearly Gates. Nope. Too lazy. Back among the living, Joe sets out to break every rule, commit every sin, and watch John Candy movies. His journey takes him to LA where he seeks the guidance of an incarcerated former puppet play master, meets a pretty Goth and her friends at Forest Lawn, drives a taco truck, becomes a viral sensation and hangs out with Jimmy Caan!
