Storyline

When we meet David Frank he is a mess. His spirit shattered by the death of his wife, this formerly successful corporate attorney spends days in his bathrobe with his only real companion, his beloved bulldog, Brutus. While David's away a tornado hits and despite his heroic efforts, he watches helplessly as the dark funnel of destruction sucks up the house, and Brutus, like some Wizard of Oz nightmare - the punishing finger of God. Then, adding insult to injury, the Insurance Company tells him they won't pay because the damage falls under the 'Act of God' clause in his policy. David is livid. But then he gets the bright idea to sue God and His representatives as co-defendants. After a farcical yet poignant series of depositions, the trial commences. Fueled by a megalomaniac and opportunistic judge, a beautiful but damaged defense attorney, and David Frank's own sharply-honed legal gymnastics, the "God Trial" stirs up a frenzy of passions. What starts as a crazy, radical stunt ... Written by Anonymous

Life Changing film!!

There are no words to describe the love I have for this little film! I have seen it multiple times at different festivals and have recommended the film to friends and family where ever I go. The writing was and is very clever, poignant and moving to someone like me who has had multiple struggles and disputes with questioning their faith and the existence of a higher power.The acting by both Ever Caradine and Henry Ian Cusick were nothing short of phenomenal and utterly moving in every sense of the word. I could really feel and understand what they were going through. They were very genuine in their performances; they spoke to my heart and hit right at home! The actors were both in-sync and the courtroom scenes just blew me away.They made me laugh, they made me smile and at times made me cry. The film made me understand what was important in life and that regardless and I will always treasure it for that. TERRIFIC FILM!!!
