A company called 2nd Chance introduces a new technology that restores life to the dead for 72 hours.
Wally knows exactly what he wants to do during his 2nd Chance. Wally wants to have an active ending and doesn't want to be remembered by his grandchild as a feeble old man. 2nd Chance is Wally's opportunity to leave the legacy he chooses and to make his dreams reality. Elizabeth must discover what she wants to do during her 2nd Chance. She has lived a life dedicated to pleasing others and putting the wants and desires of others above her own. What will she do when she has complete focus driven by a 72 hour time limit? Can Elizabeth find in death what she wasn't able to find in life? Chris and Peter have gained wealth and fame from 2nd Chance, but as the guardians of this technology must navigate protests, customs, beliefs and challenge the funeral industry to bring 2nd Chance to the masses. Chris and Peter have been given much through the discovery of 2nd Chance, but there is also much expected of them. What ending would you write to your story if you had only 72 hours remaining? Is there anything in your life that you didn't do that you regret? Everyone deserves a 2nd Chance.
