"Hasa Diga Eebowai” meaning Fuck you, God. This is how our two promising missionaries are greeted by the villagers they have come to save, which as it happens is right after they are robbed by soldiers of the local warlord, General Butt-Fucking Naked! The devout, supercilious missionary-to-be Elder Kevin Price and the insecure Elder Arnold Cunningham, a compulsive liar, are challenged by the lack of interest from the locals, who are distracted by more pressing issues such as HIV/AIDS, famine, female genital mutilation, and oppression from the village warlords.
