A problem-riddled television reporter blaming his troubles on God is imbued with the powers of the Almighty to experience the difficulties of his job firsthand.

ABSTRACT
Buffalo, New York television reporter Bruce Nolan finds himself mired in an existential crisis brought about by complacency with his job and happy relationship with girlfriend Grace, blaming his emotional troubles on their most logical cause: God. The big man upstairs unexpectedly answers Bruce's cursing of his name in a big way one fateful day when he arrives in the reporter's personal life, blessing him with his powers for a short spell of time to give him a firsthand window into the gargantuan difficulties he faces in his seemingly-plum line of work.
