This comical look at the fine line between religious devotion and fanaticism focuses on a young man named Martin who reveals to his devout parents that he does not believe in God, and that he is proud of his atheism. His extended family goes into hysterics when they hear the news, especially his pious aunt Patricia. She immediately decides that Martin has been possessed by the Devil and therefore must repent, or be killed to save his soul. With a running commentary by various deities and prophets such as Krishna, Jesus, Zeus, Buddha, and Mohammed, the story becomes more and more absurd as Martin's family Christmas party approaches and aunt Patricia loads her snubnose .38 revolver.
