    Abe, an angel of death, decides to move a client appointment in favor of getting an ice cream sandwich. The only problem is that his “appointments” are to greet the newly deceased and take them to the next stop. Things quickly spiral out of control when Abe’s repeated attempts to “bump off” his delayed appointment fails, and the real threat of a new “unauthorized life” will occur unless Abe gets everything back on track. A surprise visit from the boss helps Abe rediscover the real meaning of life and death. Learn More
