In the chambers of a thousand-year-old monastery lives a monk who dreamed of being able to fly to see his creator. He invents a winged system, but falls to his death and is judged a suicide and relegated to purgatory. Since then, the monk has been searching for someone to free him, and 1000 years later finds inventor Jack Brown into whose brain he resides to help him build the wing system correctly which will free the monk from purgatory. This "comedy" fantasy seems to have a somewhat troubled script, and/or direction, in a confusing mix of genres.
