WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A misunderstood miracle shakes a conservative congregation's values to its core when their beloved pastor becomes the center of a spectacular firestorm that will forever shatter their notions of sex, gender and intercourse between animate beings. A transcendent trans-comedy of errors featuring mad ministers, divine interventions, confused angels and maybe even the antichrist.
