For the first 20 years of his life, Sam (Bret Harrison) wondered why his parents went so easy on him. Whether it was school, sports or career choices, Sam's folks always let him get by with the least possible effort. As a result, Sam skipped college, and took a dead-end job at the local Work Bench home improvement store. Everything in his slacker world changed the day Sam turned 21 and discovered the truth: his parents sold his soul to the devil before he was even born. When Satan himself (Ray Wise) drops by to personally explain that Sam must now serve as his bounty hunter, tracking down evil souls that have escaped and returning them to Hell, Sam refuses to accept his bizarre fate. After getting a glimpse of Satan's temper, however, Sam realizes that breaking a deal with the devil has consequences that are very, very bad. Still, even while Sam is forced to do the Devil's bidding, he's determined to find a loophole in his contract, and to discover the real reason his parents were forced to make the evil deal in the first place.
