Starlight & Superfish
An atheist is stuck in Purgatory.
- Genre: Features
- Runtime: 01 hr : 21 min : 00 sec
Nick appears in his apartment - confused and disoriented. He discovers he can’t move anything. He can’t open the medicine cabinet, can’t pick up a Perrier bottle, can’t open the door. He can’t even feed his fish! A naturally timid and nervous person, Nick begins to panic. Suddenly, a British glam-rock band bursts in the door. The band informs Nick that he is dead. He can’t leave his apartment. To escape, he must learn all the valuable life lessons he ignored while he was alive. Then, he will be judged by God and sent either to Heaven or Hell – a jarring concept for an atheist. With the rock band serving as his modern-day Greek chorus, Nick must rely on Rex, the hot-headed, half-drunken lead singer as his spiritual guide to avoid the fiery pits of Hell. Further complicating matters is the new tenant. Nick’s landlord wastes no time renting the “vacant” apartment to newly single Beth. An evangelical Christian who is unaware that Nick and the other spirits are sharing the apartment with her, Beth is undergoing a harrowing transformation of her own. Will her church accept her leaving her husband? Will her friends abandon her? Or should she just run back to her man? Nick is equally attracted to and repulsed by Beth. She’s beautiful, but she’s a super-Christian. A former Christian himself, Nick loved the camaraderie at church, but he just couldn’t accept the judgmental nature of the religion. That, and the fact that the pastor was screwing his girlfriend, helping her get “closer to God.” Atheism seemed the safest option.
