'When We Were Gods' is the true story of a lost, forgotten and dispossessed generation. Fuelled with the fury, cynicism, dreams and humour of people who are bored with media deceptions and mass produced fairytales. Set in a sedated Northern seaside town at 'the end of the line,' it tells the story of 'scum washed up on the tide.' Outsiders.
A bomb explodes in Chris' brain, blowing his bright city life apart. Everything is gone, his girl, his home, his job and his friends; all ripped away. Chris, 'crash-lands' back in the town he grew up in, with the wreck of his alcoholic father. Spiralling further down into a 'place, with neither light nor darkness', believing himself dead, Chris meets Jim who introduces himself as an angel. We are all Gods. Glorious, magical and infinite. We are here and this is our story.
