Storyboard Text

  • You died in the accident. But don't worry about it. Everyone dies.
  • You are dead.
  • I'm dead... I don't understand. The last thing I remember was the truck. It slipped...
  • What happened? Where am I?
  • More or less. Yes.
  • Is this the afterlife?
  • And who are you?
  • I'm God
  • He doesn't look like God
  • Sure. Happens all the time.
  • You'll be reincarnated as a Chinese peasant girl in 540 AD.
  • So what's the point of it all?
  • You're sending me back in time?! Won't that mean that I could have interacted with myself at some point?
  • So what happens now?
  • No, just you. In this universe, there is just you and me. 
  • All you. Different incarnations of you. Every time you victimized someone,  you victimized yourself. Every act of kindness you’ve done, you’ve done to yourself. Every happy and sad moment ever experienced by any human was, or will be, experienced by you.
  • I want you to mature.
  • You mean mankind?
  • But all the people on Earth...
  • Because you are my child and someday you will become like me. Right now you're a fetus. You’re still growing. Once you’ve lived every human life throughout all time, you will have grown enough to be born.  Now it’s time for you to move on to your next life.
  • Why? Why do all this?
