Synopsis
Jesus has come back to earth, landing at JFK Airport with his sexy assistant Magdalena. He has been sent by his wrathful Father to break the seven seals on the Book of Life but is having second thoughts. The Book, now on computer disc, is to be found in a bowling alley locker room where a young gambler and the waitress who loves him chat with a down-and-out drifter who is really Satan in disguise. The two stories merge when all the protagonists come together in a hotel room.
