The story begins in 2014 with Mickey Block. Mickey has borrowed money to buy a car.

Unfortunately he crashes it without insuring it and is now being pursued by Charlie Daz, a loan shark.

Taking refuge in Crazy Max’s Retro Record shop, Mickey meets Max (Paul Nicholas), a mystical figure, who discovers Mickey has problems and tells him he can turn his life around if he performs two selfless deeds within seven days.

Can Mickey fulfil his destiny and turn his life around or has time run out?
