Obsessive gambler Little Joe Jackson finds trouble when he is shot by Domino Johnson over money he owed. Little Joe's wife, Petunia Jackson, worries if her husband will make it to heaven even though he is a gambling man. During his stay at the hospital, as death is closing in, associates of the Lord and the devil make an arrangement with him. The arrangement is for six months to fix the mistakes he has committed. He will not remember this arrangement once he is back on Earth, yet the associates of both sides will be looking over him and present things to him to come towards their way. Good vs. Evil.
