Marcus finds himself in the lowest angel job possible in this cruel afterlife world, a Gardener. And even crueler, he is sent to work in his own hometown and watch his one true love, Sophia, decide to finally patch up her life and move on after all the pain and loss from WWI. But Marcus isn’t ready to let go of Sophia. In this tragic but upbeat musical riddled with
comedic elements and powerfully driven music, Marcus must battle his will against all odds—his insufferable companion Bob, Dark Deliverers, Miracle Makers, and God’s rules—to find a way for him and Sophia to be together again. But at what cost?
