After the accidental murder of his own parents, Sock, a genuinely sweet but somewhat unstable teen who struggles with homicidal tendencies, decides that his only way out is to commit suicide. Upon arrival in Hell he is not met with eternal torture and suffering, but with Mephistopheles, the amicable manager of the underworld, who instead makes him a job offer: Sock is to become a demon, charged with the task of haunting humans indefinitely in the hope of ultimately driving them to suicide. At first this seems like Sock’s dream job—a way he can finally act on his darker desires and have them be met with reward rather than consequence—but after meeting his first target, a disinterested, lonely, and apathetic highschooler named Jonathan, he finds that the job is not as easy as he’d hoped it would be. Sock’s unfortunately friendly demeanor proves to be a detriment, and as he attempts to haunt the unwavering Jonathan, he finds himself with another desire that just might be stronger… and just might have a consequence.
