In bitter times, the heroes rise – and Boys and Gods are tested.

Michael’s Mother believes the only way to purge sin is thru the forced consumption of gallons of water. When Michael is discovered drawing a comic book featuring Jesus as a 1930s serial action hero, his Mother labels it the ultimate sacrilege. As his penance turns lethal and his hours grow dim, Michael’s only chance of survival lies in the hands of the man himself.
