"....'Shadow Moon' is a man serving three years in prison for assault. With only days remaining in his sentence, Shadow is given an unexpected early release after his beloved wife 'Laura' dies in a car accident. Flying home for the funeral, Shadow is seated next to a man calling himself 'Wednesday', who offers Shadow a job, he seems confident Shadow will accept.



"Arriving home, Shadow finds that the life he thought was waiting for him is gone. With no other options, he accepts Wednesday's offer.
