Just when a man thinks his luck is running out, things start getting even worse. He gets run over by a bus. Sprayed with cheese sandwich by a supernatural being. Smashed against a tunnel by a speeding train. He falls from two thousand feet into an artificial waterfall. He gets drunk, drowned and cursed. He gets incinerated, widdled on, folded, bent, spindled, mutilated, and generally mucked about with. And in return? In return he gets the leading role in a perplexing, hilarious race against time and chance, set in a jinxed land menaced buy the impending death of good fortune.
