"Expiration Date" tells the story of Charlie Silvercloud III, whose father and grandfather unexpectedly and tragically `expired' on their 25th birthdays both times at the hands of (tires) runaway milk trucks. Charlie is fast approaching his own 25th and, convinced that his family is cursed believes that nothing will protect him from a similar fate. Charlie is terrified, but has accepted he's going to die, but then he meets the girl, (Bessie Smith) who teaches him how to live even in the face of death. It is her take on dying, and his refusal to try living, that binds the two together...at first. But when Charlie discovers Bessie’s hidden truth and she discovers his hidden agenda, things begin to get out of hand...
