Tender Branson, the last surviving member of the Creedish death cult, has commandeered a Boeing 747, emptied of passengers, in order to tell his story to the plane's black box before it crashes.

As media messiah he ascends to the very top of the freak-show heap before finally and apocalyptically spiralling out of control.
