In JUDGMENT DAY, Sammy Campo, a deeply corrupt, morally bankrupt lawyer (JASON ALEXANDER), has a near-death experience in which he encounters a terrifying angel who threatens him with eternal damnation. In a desperate attempt to redeem himself, Sammy teams with a Catholic priest, who is having his own crisis of faith as he struggles against Church authority. Together Sammy and the priest debate the timeless questions of Western philosophy — “morality,” “faith,” and “Are people any damn good?” — as they form an unlikely bond in this irreverent comedy.
