Arthur, who believes himself to be the second son of God, lives at a boarding house in Ponsonby with all the other ex-psych patients released into community care, only to find themselves washed up on the shores of 'cappuccino city' - unwanted and struggling to cope with life on the outside, as their home is threatened with closure. A gentle giant of a man, Arthur realizes his time has finally come, and he has two important tasks to complete before the end. He must let people know that judgment is coming, and he needs to find the Queen of Heaven, with whom he will father a miraculous child. At the same time, in another part of the city, Margaret, mother of two, is about to become intimately involved in the Second Coming. For those caught up in their story, the celestial dance of the ripening moon swirls inexorably above them as a poignant and ultimately deadly network of miracle and tragedy sweeps through their lives. Now a major new international movie, filmed on location in Ponsonby, starring Rawiri Paratene as Arthur and Sara Wiseman as Margaret, due for release in 2010, following the movie's debut at the New Zealand International Film Festival.
