Eleanor Shellstrop is living in The Good Place. That's where truly virtuous people go when they die. Which is a little confusing for Eleanor, who lived a selfish, unseemly life. As she quickly realizes, she's accidentally been mistaken for a different Eleanor Shellstrop who helped get innocent people off death row. But as she actively tries to improve herself to stay in the Good Place, she begins to realize she really does have the capacity to change for the better.
