Next Tuesday: Apocalypse. Unless Marie can prevent it. Yes, world, we’re in the hands of a chaotic but irresistibly enchanting woman in her 30s who’s just left her petit-bourgeois fiancé standing at the altar, whose mom is still living the 70s hippie dream and whose dad has just hooked up with a chesty, very young and very blonde White Russian woman.

Marie still dreams of true love – and when she runs into Jeshua, she can’t believe her eyes: a kind and considerate young man, sensitive, soft-spoken, who seems to know her every thought and every wish, and who’s not gay! He’s from Palestine, he says, and has apparently never seen a tomato or eaten a pizza... Granted, he’s a bit weird, but to Marie, he’s simply divine...

Marie soon finds out how right she is: the man she loves is none other than the Savior, the Good Shepherd. Happy End? Not quite! Jesus has come down to check out his flock before the end of the world, which is penciled in the Eternal Calendar for next Tuesday. No time to lose, thinks Marie…

Florian David Fitz functions as director, scriptwriter and lead actor in this witty look at what could happen if Jesus returned to Earth today – and met a woman like Marie, played here by Jessica Schwarz (BUDDENBROOKS, PERFUME).
