A dying man lies on his bunk wrapped in blankets. He is surrounded by a gang of prisoners who are questioning him about his philosophy, his thought process, and his criminal ways.
The dying man is an author who has spent his life living and writing about crime. Some of his writings are revolutionary and others are philosophical, as he has authored a dozen books.
Some of the prisoners press him about crime and hustling, hoping to enrich themselves, while others probe his mind for answers about death and the afterlife. Upon answering a philosophical question, the author gasps his last breath and dies. The prisoners raid his locker and steal all of his books.
Six months later, the administration notices a change in the prison population. The prisoners have become more disciplined, militant, and like-minded. This makes the administration uneasy as it sets the atmosphere for rebellion. They soon realize that the prisoners have been reading books from the deceased author.
When crimes are being executed, based on the author’s writings, the F.B.I. is called in to find the source and stop the crime wave. As the agents begin their investigation, they soon discover that the author had been serving time under an alias name, and has several. The fact that they do not know who he is, makes them question the validity of his death.
Further, they find that the books he has written are dangerous. The stories in them are blueprints for committing crimes, and one of them shines a light on an unsolved murder.
Searching more, the agents are taken aback by the author’s death manifesto, which takes them deeper into the theory of life after death. The agents’ question, Who is this man who writes about crime and then writes books on morality and how to gain mastery over self?
As the agents open up the manuscripts, they will soon learn, The Wisdom of a Dying God.
