Comedy about how a desperate bishop, an Islamic copper polisher and Vatican cardinals want to employ the recently returned Messiah to save their own skin.

In the Netherlands, the last believer kicks the bucket. Desperate, the bishop, who is threatened by the supreme cardinal with deportation to Siberia, prays for grace from Heaven. And lo and behold, the miracle happens: Jesus Christ returns to earth. The bishop calls in an Islamic copper polisher as an interpreter and together they go to the cardinals to convince them of the miracle. This time, it should be feasible to prolong the Christian myth with yet another 2000 years, shouldn’t it? Comedy in which everybody, including J.C., is especially busy saving their own skin.
