When one door closes, another one opens. And when that door opens into the most mysterious bar in the universe, strange things begin to happen. Bar Karma, a mystical watering hole that travels through time and space, pops into its patrons' lives when they need more than a stiff drink. Every happy hour, the Bar Karma staff guides one lost soul through a crossroads in his or her life, using eerie glimpses into the past, present and many possible futures. Some think it's destiny, others believe free will brought them to the bar. But none of them will pass through the Bar Karma doors without being changed forever.
