Walter, a mild mannered movie ticket-taker believes himself to be the son of God with the responsibility to judge the eternal fate of everyone. When a ghost stuck in purgatory interrupts Walter’s daily routine his world is turned upside down forcing him to reassess the meaning of his life.
As a young man still living with his doting mother (Virginia Madsen), Walters job makes it particularly easy for him to decide the individual fates of large numbers of people as they obliviously enter the theatre. Enter Greg (Weeds’ Justin Kirk), a ghost stuck in limbo. Greg senses that Walter could hold the key to his own fate, and wants him to make the decision that will send him to his final resting place, be it heaven or hell. But reminded of the terrible power he wields, Walter finds his bargain with God increasingly hard to keep.
This gentle, absurdist comedy spins an endearing yarn that literally spans the gamut from the ridiculous to the sublime
