Dann der nächste Schreck: aus der Dunkelheit kommt ein grosser schlitzäugiger junger Mann auf ihn zu. Es ist Georges, der unter dem Down-Syndrom leidet und gerade aus dem Behindertenheim getürmt ist, um seine Mutter zu besuchen. Von Schuldgefühlen geplagt, bietet Harry Georges an, ihn nach Hause zu fahren. Eine Fahrt, die sehr viel länger werden soll. Gleichzeitig der Anfang einer wunderbaren Freundschaft zweier Männer, erfüllt mit der Hoffnung Liebe, Verständnis und einen Platz zu finden, an dem sich beide endlich zu Hause fühlen ...

Dio esiste e vive a Bruxelles con una moglie timorosa e una figlia ribelle. Il figlio, più celebre di lui, è fuggito molti anni prima per conoscere gli uomini più da vicino, morire per loro e lasciare testimonianza e testamento ai suoi dodici apostoli. Egoista e bisbetico, Dio governa il mondo da un personal computer facendo letteralmente il bello e il cattivo tempo sugli uomini. Ostacolato da Ea, decisa a seguire le orme del fratello e a fuggire il 'suo regno', la bambina si 'confronta' con JC (Jesus Christ) ed evade dall'oblò della lavatrice. Espulsa dentro una lavanderia self-service infila la via del mondo, recluta sei apostoli e si prepara a combattere l'ira di Dio, a cui ha manomesso il computer e di cui ha denunciato il sadismo, spedendo agli uomini via sms la data del loro decesso.
