New Year's Eve. Salvation Army girl Edit is lying sick in bed and begs her brother to find David Holm - who is, coincidentally, again spending his time with becoming drunk with his friends. They start talking about their late friend Georges who told them that the last person who dies on New Year's Eve will have to drive drive the phantom carriage and collect the souls of the dead. When David refuses to see Edit, the friends start an argument and accidentally kill him. Then the phantom carriage arrives, driven by Georges, who shows David his life: how his wife left him when he became an alcoholic and how Edit prayed for his salvation. David is crushed and returns back to his body. He immediately stops his wife from committing suicide and promises he will change himself for the better.
