Gambler Joe Jackson is shot at a gambling club over an outstanding debt. His wife prays for his eternal soul as she’s afraid that he won’t make it into heaven. As Joe is close to death, he is visited by agents of both the Lord and of Lucifer. They give him six months to atone for the errors of his life. Once back on Earth, he won’t remember the deal but both the Lord and Lucifer will be watching over him, trying to get him to see things their way.
