Tim is an ordinary man who was offered extraordinary chances. He could have become a successful lawyer, a mafioso crime leader, or a rich company investor. Years later he tells his friend of this story and of how he regrets not taking one of these amazing opportunities. On his way home he is abruptly struck by lightning. He opens his eyes to find himself in a large car owned by the very criminals who offered him to become their leader. The lightning brought him to an alternate reality of what his life would have been like had he enlisted in the mafia. Later, on their way to a warehouse, they are ambushed by a SWAT team, and just before being brutally shot to death Tim is struck by lightning a second time. This time he wakes up in a hot tub in a glorious mansion; he is the investor. This alternate reality seems perfect until Tim realizes that he lives alone and recently tried to commit suicide due to suffering from depression. He is struck down again, by lightning. Finally he wakes up ... Written by Sibley, Sasha

Did You Know?


The rain scene in the bar parking lot was actually shot on the day of a violent storm and the only way to film was to cover the camera with a plastic bag. It was so cold that by the end of the shoot the cast and crew could all be found soaking their hands in hot water in the bathroom. See more »


When the hummer drives into the shot of the mafia parking lot scene, a Carmax license plate can be seen on the front of the vehicle. The next shot shows a regular license which was applied in post production. See more »
