RICHARD, a married man in his forties, wakes up in a white room and has no clue how he got there. The room is sectioned off by a glass wall with an office space behind it. Once ANGELA, an attractive African-American business woman, appears in the office, she tells Richard why he’s here: He has died on Earth and is now in a between-station where he needs to confess all his sins in order to move on to the next level. First, Richard laughs and refuses to accept the information, but once he experiences several flashbacks of a car accident and a tunnel with a bright light, he starts to believe the tragic truth.
After going through the five stages of grief, Richard starts to confess some of his sins to Angela. The conversation often leads to passionate debates about core issues ranging from the meaning of life, to right and wrong, to free will, to religion and to Richard’s atheistic point of view. A parallel storyline follows Richard’s wife, MEGAN who converses with a psychologist about the insurmountable difficulties she experiences in her marriage with Richard. The psychologist offers a mind-blowing last solution and invites Megan to visit the underground company DALA (Die And Live Again). At her visit Megan gets to experience firsthand how a car-simulator, combined with special effects, can implant vivid impressions of a car crash and a ‘near’ death experience into a sedated person’s subconscious.
Now we know that Richard was successfully tricked into believing that he was dead and we continue to witness Richard’s reflecting thoughts as he looks back at his life with a new perspective, remorse and regrets. At the end, as Richard comes clean with everything, he’s transformed into a human being with a deepened under-standing of life, religion and even God. Richard leaves the white room through a tunnel and walks toward a bright light. Once he steps through the light, Richard finds himself in a sound stage, facing the applauding workers of the DALA - company. As his mind races for an explanation, the small group makes way to reveal Megan, waiting to start a new life with him. Richard is overcome by a world of emotions.
