God is a grumpy sadist living in Brussels who created humankind specifically to have something to torment. He manipulates reality via a personal computer, which he strictly forbids his family from accessing. One day, his daughter Ea sneaks into his office and discovers how He has been mistreating humans. She steals the key to His office and accesses the pre-destined dates of death of every human in the world and releases it via text message. Ea then locks God's computer and escapes. Wandering the streets of Brussels, she decides to write a Brand New Testament as her contribution to the human race.
