As 22-year-old Neal’s life is on track to become a lawyer just like his father, the prayer of his heart is, "There must be a better way." His call for help launches him on a speedup journey through life's choices to see that all roadways of the world lead to death.
He is given a magic 8-ball oracle to answer his yes/no questions—the Holy Spirit—and a package to deliver to a place that does not exist on any map. Saying yes to Spirit means being shown our "blind spots," places in our lives we have overlooked or denied the truth. In the end, Neal realizes he never needed an outside source to get his answers. He also learns that whatever he is willing to let go of always comes back in the end, in its purified form if it contributes to his ultimate happiness.
