Distraught over breaking up with his girlfriend, Desiree, Zia slashes his wrists. Zia discovers that there is no real ending, only a run-down afterlife that is strikingly similar to his old one, just a bit worse. Discovering that Desiree has also "offed" herself, he sets out on a road trip with his Russian rocker friend to find her. Their journey takes them through an absurd purgatory where they discover that being dead doesn't mean you have to stop living.
