***SPOILERS*** Suffering from a case of terminal cancer and about to kick off for good Andy Perez, Clifton Collins Jr., and his friend Marco Flores, Greg Scrano, decide to take one last ride-For Andy- on Marco's hopped up jalopy and go out in style. As it turns out after the car that their on crashes in flames it's the healthy as a ox Marco not the one his death-bed Andy who ends up in the city morgue! It fact the accident has Andy fully recover from his terminal cancer! With Andy feeling down in the dumps in that his good friend Marco being dead he sees all of Marco's friends and family members including Andy's sister and the late Marco's girlfriend Jami, Merdedes del la Zerda, not morning him at all and acting as if he isn't dead at all!

There's also the fact that Marco seems to have come back from the dead and is only seen by Andy who tells him not to worry that all is well for him in the world beyond! At first freaking out Andy soon starts to realize that there's something to this strange behavior on Marco's friends and family members and maybe its because they all feel that Marco's is in a better place now being dead then when he was alive! The fact is that Andy has the situation all backwards and when he attend Marco's funeral, with Marco popping up out of his coffin, that the truth finally hits him.

***SPOILERS*** As were shown in this "New Twilight Zone" episode that death isn't all that bad if you, the guy that's dead, sees it for what it really is. Andy who's terminal cancer suddenly disappeared with his friend Marco's death didn't realize that's, Marco's death, was what cured him. Not in the fact that Marco died but that he***MAJOR SPOILER***"lived" to see what really happened. And what happened is what convinced a confused Andy that Marco wasn't really dead in the way he thought that he was! And that death wasn't all that bad at all but only a new beginning when it came to himself!
