Motown and Darius work in a morgue, trading put-downs and toiling among the most undemanding of customers. Outside of their decidedly dreary jobs, the two dream of bigger and better things. If only they could win the $25,000 prize that will go to the winners of the upcoming 3-on-3 Streetball Tournament.
One night, having been demoted to the graveyard shift, they catch their semi-sane colleague Franklin in a dark alley using the auto battery of Motown's precious Gremlin to bring to life a monstrous dead man whose heart Franklin has just replaced. Now if they can just get their new mutant friend to play basketball, the basketball tournament is theirs!
