Henry Ford lived a simple life of an ordinary salesman. But when the doctor calls time and he suddenly finds his physical body under the death sheet, Henry embarks on an extraordinary odyssey into the afterlife of purgatory where he must use a new voice to avoid eternal death in the lake of fire.
As Henry breaks into song guided by a piano man who helps him play with the riddles of pop culture, he dances with the hipster rock-star devil and his band of banditos, covorts with his playful, talented, and sin-sational girlfriend, Lust, makes amends with his family, and witnesses miracles- all while attempting to find the “Stairway to Heaven” and avoid the “Highway to Hell.” As his musical journeyshifts from contemplation into heavier metals, Henry seeks answers to his deepest questions within a cast of characters that teach him that in the end, it is up to all of us to choose between the corrupting influence of evil and the redemptive virtues of good.
Filled with classic rock and roll references, wit, and charm, The Afterworld follows one man’s thrilling ride through the afterlife as a battle for his soul begins.
“Entertaining, thought-provoking, and original.”
“Consider THE AFTERWORLD the illigitimate lovechild of Dante Alighieri and Janis Joplin. Sex, drugs, and rock and roll in purgatory.”
