Covering the war in Afghanistan provided journalist Paul Asher with some of the best stories of his young career. However, upon returning home, Asher struggles to deal with the after-effects of his experiences, a failing marriage and his dying faith. Not knowing where to turn, he dives deeply into the story of a lifetime.
Sitting down with a mysterious man claiming to be God over the course of three fateful days, Asher finds himself answering as many questions as he asks. While wrestling with what he knows and what he’s unsure of, he finds himself at the crossroads many come to in their lives.
