Description: Lance is a budding comedian who is hit by a bus and dies before his time. Wishing to return to earth, but unable to inhabit his former body, he is placed in the corpse of a rich, white Manhattan mogul. Living in the body of a callous old white man would be bizarre enough for Lance without falling in love with Sontee, the beautiful woman publicly battling Wellington's company at the same time. And as if that wasn't enough, he's got to deal with the love affair between Wellington's wife and his personal assistant, and their plot to have him killed. Can reincarnation add to self-discovery, true love and a better stand up routine? Lance Barton is about to find out.
