Greed and desperation drive Aaron Abbott to challenge his sister's competency. Believers line up against nonbelievers in the circuit court of Chicago to decide, for once and for all, if there is a God.
Aaron needed his sister Trisha’s inheritance. As a blue blood, he knew well the damage created when important resources were not held by the cream of society. Trisha taught developmentally disabled kids. When her boyfriend, Hat, died in a car accident, she reverted into her hermit-like old self. Aaron met Hat once, and suspected he may have been one of Trisha's pupils. Who better to assist Aaron than Sebastian Sherwin, a famously unscrupulous, atheist attorney? And what the hell kind of name is Hat anyway?
Judge Cohen was up for reelection. There was zero public appeal gained by declaring a young woman incompetent. Unfortunately for him, the story was picked up by a blog and gained national attention. Overnight, his courtroom turned into an unruly zoo with believers on one side and nonbelievers on the other. It got so he had to sneak into his own chambers and wear a disguise to eat lunch. How could he be reelected by strangers when his own wife and grandkids accused him of not adequately defending the young woman or his faith?
During the court hearing, Joey Pitasi, "wise-guy" friend of Hat explains, “Trisha is cuckoo and loving brudder's trying to lock her up and take her cake.”
When Aaron is questioned in court about his sister's competency in finance, he replies, "Sir, my sister wouldn't know Dow Jones from Tom Jones."
