When the caravan of the Mobile Church of the Holistic Christ rolls into a sleepy town on a hot spring day, all hell breaks loose. Dominee Donges, undisputed moral authority of Nylsdorp, faces a direct challenge from the charismatic Reverend Grant, with his fire-and-brimstone sermons and his miracle cures. As the Dominee's church runs empty and the Reverend's tent fills up, a new disaster strikes: the Lazarus Funeral Parlour. Here, the Reverend Grant raises the stakes by raising the dead. Corpses disappear as if resurrected, and business booms. But enough is enough! The Dominee smells a rat, and when his investigations reveal more smelly business, he takes action.
