God exists. He lives in Brussels. He's odious to his wife and daughter and spends his days in front of his computer inventing laws of universal hassle ("the toast always falls jam side down"; "you always choose the slowestmoving line"). We know a lot about God's son, but very little about his daughter. Her name is Ea and she's ten years old. One day, she revolts against her father, hacks his computer and leaks to the entire world by SMS everyone's death date. Some people have little time left; others have a lot. Some drop everything and stop going to work. Others change nothing. Some hurry to achieve a childhood dream. Others try to kill themselves before their time, to no eff ect. Everyone is confronted with the question: What should I do with the rest of my life? It's up to Ea to perform her miracles.
