During a funeral for Michael Doyle, he suddenly pops out of his coffin, miraculously still alive. The doctors are at a loss to explain his incredible recovery or sudden re-emergence, but his wife and daughter and simply glad he's back. This joy is tainted by uneasiness, however, as Michael seems to feel as though being allowed to live is a punishment, and he wants to move on. Michael is sure the reason he was sent back was to accomplish something, but what? Finally, he hits upon the idea that it's his duty, as a good father, to take his daughter with him, beyond life... by killing her.
