Eliza Hunter ( Geraldine Viswanathan ) is an angel, working in Heaven's Department of Dirt. She asks for a transfer to something more challenging, and ends up in the Department of Answered Prayers. The only other employee there is Craig Bog (Daniel Radcliffe - Harry Potter ), who has been stuck there for ten thousand years and has an impressive beard to show for it. Unfortunately it is understaffed because it was intended for a much smaller human population, and instead of angelic genies granting wishes they are basically functions as a lost-and-found.

When Eliza's ambitions exceed her ability, she runs to God (Steve Buscemi - Armageddon (1998) ) and asks him to sort out the world. Instead, God decides to blow up the Earth.
