More About "The Gray":
Perez is a former cop who has been judged to be morally “gray”— someone who is neither good nor evil. As penalty for not choosing a moral lane, he’s been forced to take a job in purgatory to process people going to heaven or hell. One day, his 20-year old son appears— full of both yearning and resentment for his father— and he gets into a series of shenanigans to stay in purgatory with Perez.

Under pressure from his supervisor, Perez decides to kick his son out of purgatory, but instead of sending him to heaven (or hell), he commits the ultimate sin and sends his son back to Earth, even if it means that Perez will spend eternity in hell. In the end, however, Perez’s actions are judged to be sacrificial and for the good of his son, and he is thus finally sent to heaven.
