How do you think that you became “you”?

Joe Gardner, is a struggling jazz musician who has a part-time job as a middle school band teacher.  
He was focused on becoming a famous pianist for a jazz band when he suddenly has an accident and finds his soul on the way to the “Great Beyond,” a place where all souls go after death.
Unable to accept death when he was so close to achieving his lifelong ambition, he finds himself in the “Great Before,” where he is misplaced as a mentor for would-be-born souls readying themselves to be born into earth.  
It's there that he meets No. 22, who’s been stuck in the "Great Beyond," and no great souls including Archimedes, Abraham Lincoln or Mother Teresa have succeeded in drawing out its “spark.” Joe is no mastermind, but offers No. 22 a deal that it can’t refuse, and the adventure begins.
