At first glance the title is pretty annoying, but it really acts as a way to grab your attention while telling you a bit about the plot.
Lou has a curse. Upon his death he walks down a hallway towards the light, but before reaching it is dragged into a portrait and enters a new persons body. He doesn’t live a nice easy life upon arrival as he his accident prone. Think ‘Final Destination’ type luck.
He meets a woman who has the same curse as him. Before getting a chance to really get down to the root of their problem she falls down an open sewer.
It’s a potentially quirky love story. Something that could be a cross between the emotional fantasy of ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ and the dark love story that was ‘Wristcutters’
