Mike Faulkner wants to kill God. No, he doesn't want to convince less people to believe; he wants to confront the deity Himself and watch Him die.
After he lost his baby girl to a childhood illness, his wife, consumed by grief, committed suicide. Through a series of (seemingly) random events, he comes to know that his wife's soul has been sent to Hell for this violation. However, Mike is a theoretical mathematician whose equations show the potential for a new form of energy that can affect the bonds of reality. In the midst of this discovery, he's approached by a demon from Hell's ruling council with an offer of immortality in exchange for creating a new weapon to storm the gates of Heaven and confront the Almighty. The demons promise to free his wife and give him absolute power for his efforts. And all it will take is destruction on an unimaginable scale, as well as the discarding of conscience in order to satiate anger. After all, what's the harm in annihilating Heaven if that means the cruel will of God can be overcome and real justice established?
