Synopsis

Loki and Bartleby are two angels that have been far from angelic. When they are banished from heaven and sent to Wisconsin, they concoct a dangerous plan that involves sneaking into a church rededication ceremony that will grant them the holy latitude to re-enter heaven against God's will -- an act that will prove God's fallibility and therefore, by extension, negate the existence of all mankind.
