A commentary on materialism, faith and community
Immaculata, an Italian/Australian cashier has been working in the same family supermarket for 15 years; illiterate with low self-esteem, Immaculata is deeply religious. One day, God speaks through her cash register, declaring Immaculata to be her local rep. God is female and Italian, something Immaculata's local priest doesn't appreciate. The owner of the supermarket, a shady character with a criminal record, starts to exploit Immaculata's 'miracles'. Soon she is arrested for fraud.... A contemporary saintly rites-of-passage comedy set in the working class suburb of Port Adelaide.
