A boxer killed in a crash proves that his death was premature, and is given the opportunity to return to Earth in various forms.

The following statement regarding the story appears after the opening credits: 'We heard a story the other day ... from a fellow named Max Corkle ... as fantastic a yarn as was ever spun. You'll say it couldn't have happened. Anyway, this one was so fascinating, we thought we would pass it on to you. It begins in Pleasant Valley... ...where all is Peace... ...and Harmony... ...and Love... ...and where two men are beating each other's brains out.'
