Seventh heaven from seven perspectives…
Supposing that Heaven existed and that the paradise we saw at the moment of dying was exactly what we wanted? The fruit of our subconcious! A mystic welcomes seven spirits onto a plane between Earth and Heaven. The mediator presents an obstacle. To integrate Heaven they must abandon all prejudice and find compassion for the other six. The mediator retraces their steps:
Of Bruno, the Buddhist in Paris who is so in love he wants to attach for life; Bridget, a Catholic mother in Glasgow suffering from cancer who believes in miracles; Joshua, a lonely Jew in London who longs to be a father but hates intimacy; Kamal, an unemployed Muslim in Hebron who wants his existence to count; Shandra, the Hindu-dancer in Calcutta who wants her daughter to have better karma; Vicky, the Agnostic-protestant in San Francisco who prefers to focus on sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll and finally Eamonn the Atheist in Dublin who scorns any God but realizes quantum physics is discovering invisible dimensions. They need to give the seal of approval to one another.
