SYNOPSIS:

“He is Everywhere” is a present-day black action comedy about a pact between a young woman tired of her own incapacity to solve her life problems and considering suicide, and with God who is annoyed that she blames all her life misfortune on him. God has transmogrified as a young man, and accompanies her in her everyday life only to demonstrate to her that she herself can solve all problems without divine involvement if she adopts a right strategy.

Cloe, the main character, interprets the idea of “right strategy” as solving the problems “at all costs” and starts applying some unethical means as she thinks that conventional ones are not efficient. God, unwillingly ends up being an accomplice with Cloe helping her to achieve her plan but only as a human being respecting the pact not to use his divine power. This results in him feeling constantly guilty and to argue with Cloe about moral dilemmas. Cloe with her simple, pragmatic way of thinking often corners him provoking his frustration.

Cloe manages to stage a kidnapping of her half-sister in order to make her step-mother to cede a share of a property which is she believes is rightfully hers after the death of her father. Cloe argues with God that her stepmother falsified the will so skilfully, that it will be faster and more efficient to trick her rather than to go through the legal proceedings. She applies the same logic to receive the compensation from a rich banker who seduced her when she was an underage girl and prefers to blackmail him rather than take the case to court. As a last deed, she also manages to get her freedom from a criminal gang where she is forced to work as a drug transporter by tricking a corrupted policeman who is protecting the boss of the gang. Through this path, she not only gains her personal freedom, but she also helps the police to disband the whole criminal network.

When all problems are solved, God acknowledges how difficult it is to be a human especially after a difficult test of endurance of spending time in prison but resisting the temptation of using his power. It’s time for God to leave and he disappears after a failure of Cloe to ask him a wish to fulfil. Cloe remains perplexed, she doesn’t know how to live without problems but an event immediately gives her an opportunity to help another human being, a young girl at the edge of suicide. Cloe makes a pact with her, before she takes this decision, she has to hear Cloe’s story.
