Father Eamon's relationship with the divine is strained in his tiny Irish village until a newcomer appears, claiming to have spoken directly to God.
Frustrated by a series of seemingly mundane clerical duties and the unfulfilled promise of an intimate connection to the divine, Father Eamon’s life is changed forever when a mysterious woman, Marla, arrives from nowhere.
After an argument during confession, Eamon attempts to reconcile with his creator while Marla ingratiates herself within the community. Marla finally convinces Father Eamon to meet with her and let her teach him how to reconnect with God.
This dark comedy examines our ability to communicate and connect, whilst enduring the harsh realities of ego, responsibility and incompetence combined.
