Michael Harrison had it all: good looks, charm, natural leadership, a wicked sense of humor, and now Ashley, his fiancee. While out celebrating with a group of friends a few nights before the wedding, Michael suddenly and unexpectedly finds himself enclosed in a coffin equipped only with a flashlight, a dirty magazine, a walkie-talkie, and a tiny breathing tube. It's all in good fun payback for the grief his buddies had suffered at the hands of his own penchant for tomfoolery that is, until his four buddies are killed in a drunk driving accident just moments after leaving Michael buried alive in his coffin. Detective Superintendent Grace himself dealing with the pain of losing a wife is brought on to the case when Ashley reports Michael missing. Suspicions are raised when Michael's only friend not at the bachelor party refuses to cooperate and Ashley's faithfulness not to mention her increasingly mysterious past are suddenly thrown into question. As Superintendent Grace soon discovers, one man's disaster is another man's fortune ...dead simple.
