At the webpage of Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) the following, among other things, is written about Hand to God:

"The God-fearing children of Fiskeflisen congregation prepare a puppetry performance in the local church. When one of the boys discovers that his puppet is leading a life of its own, all hell breaks loose. Literally. In this laugh out loud, ruthless comedy the devil-obsessed handpuppet shows the children, the pastor and the Sunday school teacher who's really the boss.

WARNING: The performance contains rude language and moments of puppetry nudity."
