HEIST A CROW is an original, absurd comedy about the afterlife. Follow John, a newly-dead, recently-spurned thief (Matt Gunnison) and a disgruntled reaper (Rana Weber) through eternity and points elsewhere as they try to win back the lives they never had. Battling an evil coke-fiend real-estate agent (Tony Summers), an abused angel looking to blow the joint (Carol Rhyu), and a misogynist higher being who may be all powerful or may just be lazy (Jesse Mueller), the duo must track down the souls guarded by a reluctant pentecostal priest (Jay Middleton) before John loses himself (and his love) to a fate worse than death.
Buzzing the metaphysics of Judeo-Christianity and Greek mythos in a blender, Heist a Crow is a family story about the not-so-desirable effects of inter-planar transport, life, death, shiny objects and subverting faith.
