Media mogul Bill Parrish is contemplating a merger with another media giant. Also his eldest, Alison, is planning an elaborate 65th birthday party for him. His younger daughter Susan, a resident in internal medicine, has a relationship with Drew, one of Bill’s board members. Considering marriage, as Bill sees Susan is not deeply in love, he suggests she wait to be swept off of her feet, suggesting “lightning could strike!”. When the company helicopter lands, he hears a mysterious voice, which he tries to ignore. Arriving in his office, Bill has sharp pains in his chest and hears the voice again, saying, “Yes.” While studying in a coffee shop, Susan meets a vibrant young man who also says “lightning may strike” a relationship between them. Stunned, she departs without getting his name. Unbeknownst to her, directly afterward, he is struck by multiple cars.

That evening, Bill hears the voice again and it summons him so Bill meets him alone in a room. Slowly materializing, it identifies itself as Death and is now in the body of the young man. Death explains that his impassioned speech to his daughter piqued his interest. Given Bill’s “competence, experience, and wisdom,” Death says that for as long as Bill will be his guide on Earth, Bill will not have to die. They both return to the dinner table and under pressure to make an introduction, clumsily make up a name for Death. Introduced to the family as “Joe Black.” Joe Black, having no sophisticated human qualities, doesn’t seem to know how to drink, eat or why food and utensils are used. He later wanders through the palatial house to adapt. Susan tries to understand his intentions, noting that his character is not the same.
