When Derek Stryker, a wealthy, narcissistic, and power-driven womanizer, is diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a secret society called Gemini promises him a fortune in the next life if he’ll leave the one in this life to them.
In the afterlife, Derek experiences extraordinary remorse due to actions during his life on Earth. He asks his guide, Michael, to return him to life in Calcutta as a poor man. Instead, he returns to a life of great fame and fortune.
In the 25th year of his new life, at the height of rock stardom, he encounters Michael again. The two set off on a journey that leads to incredible realizations about humanity and the future of Earth, and Derek finally finds out why he returned.
