Bug is just your average 13-year-old girl who happens to have been born into a criminal family that's hiding out in a storage facility. So naturally, she's transformed herself into a high priestess who's trying to raise the dead. On this particular summer day, her incantations seem to work, setting off an acceleration of events ending in a rough Armageddon that launches her into the world.

Approximate running time: 2 hours (including intermission)
