Mitch Albom delivers an offbeat comedy that skewers Hollywood egos and the movie business. Tyler Johnes, a self-absorbed actor who has finally been nominated for an Oscar, drops dead of a heart attack the night before the awards ceremony. He winds up in a peculiar sort of purgatory - an Irish pub that doesn't serve alcohol. Outraged at his bad luck and determined to know if he wins, he bargains with heaven's gatekeeper, the Irish bartender. What follows is a very funny take on the afterlife and judgment day.
