    • Synopsis
    • When God (AKA Godfrey) decides to improve the flagging prospects of Vic, he pairs him up with the unprincipled and sexually predatory Mary. But even with Godfrey's divine powers, the path of true love is beset with the twists and turn of fate. A sexual wonder drug, an unscrupulous conman, two psychotic gangsters, a long-dead twin and a terrible case of mistaken identity, all combine to create the "Acts of Godfrey".
      As a group assembles for a two-day sales course called ‘Win Only Win’, Godfrey sets the tone by informing us that we have no control over our lives and are merely his pawns. We are introduced to the hapless alarm salesman Vic Timms, whom Godfrey announces he will pair up with the gorgeous and predatory estate agent Mary MacDalen.
      Also on the course (run by one of Godfrey’s emissaries, Brad Angel) are the medical reps Terry and Phil who are carrying the drug that’s a combination of Viagra and coke called ‘Poke’. We meet the geriatric conman Malcolm and his dowdy Indian assistant Gita, an undertaker who is under the old man’s control.
      As night falls and drink is consumed, Godfrey makes Mary strike a wager with the blonde bombshell Jacqui that the two women can seduce Vic and the young boy-band manager Jamie.
      The conference progresses, a web of connections between all the delegates is revealed and past actions crowd in on an increasingly suspenseful present.
      The next day however, brings a truly terrible surprise, a moment of unalloyed joy and a final twist that is literally devilish…
