Storyline

Sam leaps into the body of Shane 'Funny Bone' Thomas, a biker and member of a gang, The Cobras, circa 1958. Al tells him that he's there to prevent the murder of Becky, a young idealist who shows great potential as a writer. Sometime in the next 24 hours she will be stabbed, but Al doesn't know by who. Despite Sam's several attempts to convince her to leave she refuses to do so. She's inspired by Jack Kerouac's On The Road and wants to experience life. Sam decides there's only one person who can convince her otherwise - Jack Kerouac himself. Written by garykmcd
