For the first 20 years of his life, Sam wondered why his parents were so easy on him. Whether it was school, sports or carreer choices, Sam's mom and dad always let him get by with the least possible effort, while at the same time pressuring his younger brother Keith to excel. As a result, Sam skipped college, took a dead-end job and now wastes endless hours playing video games and wishing he had the guts to ask out his pretty co-worker, Andi (Nikki Reed). Everything in his slacker world changes the day Sam turns 21 and discovers the ungodly reason his parents let him slide: they sold his soul to the devil before he was born.

Still as weird and scary as his life has become, Sam is surprised to find that he somehow feels good about his newfound "mission" - removing evil-does from the world and sending them back to where they belong. WIth his friends and his trusty vessel-of-the-week at his side, Sam is ready to face his destiny as the Reaper.
