About this show

Something beyond comprehension is happening in a Marble Hill, Bronx apartment. Barry Ricewater, a perfectly healthy 37-year-old businessman is purposefully dying of a treatable disease. He's become convinced that he's God and must return to heaven to save his corrupt family from prison.

The Ricewater clan thinks that he's crazy . . . until a slew of strange, supernatural phenomena begin to occur. Derek Ahonen's Amerissiah is a new American ghost story about the thin line between ambition and corruption, faith and insanity.
