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.
