"Want to hear the name of this new brothel? The Seventy-Two Virgins. By-line: Heaven on Earth."  

On a sleepy little street in a sleepy little town the religious war to end all religious wars is about to take place.

Valli the Hindu wants that Jewess, Reba, gone. Annie, the Christian wants to create heaven on earth. Muhammad the Muslim wants his 72 virgins. Hong the Taoist wants to go with the flow and Ismo the atheist wants to rise above it and find the cure for cancer… 

It's a battle to the death. Who will be the last man standing?
