Frank Nolan and Fay Peronivic find themselves in a mysterious all-night café following a brush with death, but they soon learn that they did, in fact, die, and have been brought back to life by the café. Frank and Fay are given the opportunity to correct something in their lives that went wrong the first time, and upon their success, they stay on as the café's new cook and waitress.
