I am sure fans will be tearing their eyes out for this one. Our main protagonist Wallace finds himself at his funeral. For the first time, he understands the pressure of his workaholic life.
While his mind is busy thinking about his death, he finds a Reaper named Mei. He takes him to a tea house called Charon’s Crossing. The reaper wants him to meet the Ferryman to know about his further existence. But since it was a big shock to him, he’s still getting used to the fact that he died in his mid-thirties. Wallace has a lot of things to deal with, but luckily, he’s got people up there to save him from his thoughts. Hugo is a very sweet ferryman, and Mei is a very generous Reaper. There’s Hugo’s grandad Nelson and Apollo, the dog, who’s still known to be a man’s best friend up there.
Soon, Wallace also realizes that death is not the end but the beginning. However, Hugo talks to him about his past life mistakes and the way he didn’t take care of his life.
