​The morning after graduating high school, Matthew wakes to a future that looks bleak. Addicted to porn, dependent on pot, alienated from his father, Matthew has no job, no friends, no college to look forward to, no future. Desperate to find meaning, Matthew reconnects with Felix over steroid fueled work outs, and finds himself lured back to the cultish Ascensionist church to perform in a play that asks: what if Abraham disobeyed God and chose not to kill Isaac? This hilarious and dark satire examines the spiraling impacts of misplaced faith and toxic masculinity.​
