WEIGHT OF THE WIND
A suicidal man is taken on a time-traveling journey of
self-discovery by God and Satan, forcing him to come to
terms with his faults and enabling him to mend the wounds
he’s left in his tracks.
In the past, Jonas was career driven with many friends
along with a supportive girlfriend named Birdie. While
striving to be a poet, he made ends meet working at a
restaurant and subsequently pushed everyone one he cared
for away. Now alone with a head full of regret and
appearing to be nowhere closer to his dream, he thinks
making a deal with the Devil sounds appealing but realizes
if God doesn’t exist, how can he?
He continues his normal nighty routine of binge drinking
and cycling through past memories, only this night he
drunkenly cries out to God and trashes his house; feeling
more alone than ever. The next morning he hangs himself in
his backyard only to wake in his bed confused and nursing
In the present no one recognizes him. Upon going to a
local bar, the place goes silent, where he meets Satan.
There he finds that one of his poems was published in a
magazine and he’s now a famous writer. Awestruck with his
new life, he tries to call Birdie but gets an unfamiliar
voice to a place called Jaybird Coffee.
It’s there that he meets with Jay Mac on several
occasions, who is himself in the future. He unveils the
keys to having a prosperous life. Jonas tries to rekindle
the relationship between him and Birdie but it appears
it’s too late, as she’s married and her husband isn’t
around, or is he?
Disheartened, Jonas finds himself with a pianist who
explains patience. He then visits Candor Magazine where he
receives a hefty check. Bill, the publicist, tells him he
must resign his contract after he belittles Sady, who
feels a lot like Jonas once did. All the while in this
state of limbo, he realizes he can alter the past and
rewrite his future.
