The life of a saint is not an easy job… You can’t get wasted at an after work party, nor go dancing at a hip night club. You can’t even flirt with a girl without upsetting the catholic community. So what’s left to do? Pray and heal people all day long? Choosing Jesus as your saviour can be a smart decision, but what if Jesus chose you?
Christopher, a successful young marketing manager, finds himself face to face with… the Virgin Mary. The apparition comes to him as a shock. Especially when considering that he’s not exactly a follower. As a matter of fact he’s more of a hedonist, shamelessly reveling in sex, drugs and other earthly pleasures. So, when Virgin Mary informs him that he has to give up all of these in order to serve God – the downward spiral is inevitable.
Christopher looses his celebrity girlfriend, his job and eventually he ends up on the street with a big dilemma to solve: shall he surrender to the God’s will or try to revolt against it and stay faithful to his profane life style.
