?What if the Bible was all wrong and God’s daughter came down to earth, to set the record straight?
In this playfully irreverent concept, God is a human meanie living in Brussels, who plots for our toast to land jam-side down. On searching God’s computer, his young daughter Ea discovers that her father is scheming to limit the lifespan of selected individuals. Determined to foil his evil intentions, she sets out to sabotage the dastardly plan by finding six fresh disciples and creating a brand new testament. But will she be in time to halt her father’s rapidly-approaching deadline?
With wackily inventive visuals, a satirical storyline and off-the-wall characters, this is absurdist cinema, the refreshing antidote to sensible filmmaking!

“A film with a big heart and an even bigger imagination” - Cath Clarke, Time Out
