KISS After 27 years of greasepaint, fireworks and three-chord nonsense, the heavy-metal conglomerate known as KISS kicks off its farewell tour Saturday night at the Blockbuster/Desert Sky Pavilion in Phoenix.

Based on actual events, this is a story about the unlikely friendship between two boys growing up in the 1960s. When David, who is in a wheelchair with muscular dystrophy, accurately foretells the death of their fourth grade teacher, his hyperactive friend, Lyle, devises a plan to find out if God really exists by attempting to get David to run again. When Lyle begins to twist the rules in a desperate attempt to give his friend some of his own excess energy, they come face to face with life's most transcendent and painful truths, and Lyle ultimately finds the answer to his question.
