The events portrayed in this movie are a collage of actual occurrences. Anecdotes of ambiguous love and hope. They assemble a world, where evangelical fanaticism has become an everyday insanity.
Glad tidings about a device that will turn a life around for good – Three treasure hunters follow the cross – A father and a son share the secrets of everlasting joy – On the other hand, a crippled child can only find serenity inside his model railway. A miracle healer shall finally bring him salvation… Little by little, odd human beings and an odd world will be made manifest. Always with them is a laughing kookaburra, suggesting what may be the only solution to this madness: Laughing lightheartedly. The events portrayed in this movie are a collage of actual occurrences. These anecdotes of ambiguous love and hope have been collected in preoccupation with evangelical Christians.
