Mitchell inexplicably stepped in front of a bus when he was 17 and wound up in Hell. Hell isn't as bad as it is hyped up to be though. Only truly evil souls wind up suffering eternal torment, for everyone else Hell is mostly a hot, crowded and tedious version of life. Because his only sin was stepping in front of that bus Mitchell gets a job assisting The Devil's right hand devil. That is where he learns about a device called a Viciseometer which can not only get him out of Hell, but let him travel through time. With the help of his friends, a girl from the 1960s, a Viking prince and a girl who died in the Great Fire of London, he hatches a plan to steal the Viciseometer and change all of their fates. Perhaps they can even prevent their untimely deaths from happening.
