People die everyday. But what happens when you die? Do you go to heaven or to hell? What happens when you go to hell? Thats where a devil advocate comes in. Before you get dragged to the pits, he/she makes a contract to defend you in exchange for the devil essence that surrounds your soul when you died.
Jake Watson just died by suicide. He now has a choice, to make a contract with the devil advocate D. Lorian Kukabara or else his soul will face the pyres of hell.
