Sam Oliver is a slacker, spending his time as a below average employee of The WorkBench; college was too "sleepy". But the day of his 21st birthday is life-altering as Sam discovers his parents previous sale of his soul to The Devil. Now, it is his responsibility to recapture lost souls from Hell with the aid of vessels--magical objects specifically designed for the confinement of a lost soul. His first soul: a fireman who enjoys setting fires. Along with his friends Sock and Ben, Sam goes after his first target using his sudden telekinetic power and the devilish Dirt Devil vacuum vessel, while simultaneously trying to kindle a romantic relationship with his co-worker Andi.
