A tale about sexual questioning within a fraternity atmosphere, “God” gets us into the head of daydreaming university student nicknamed ‘Oprah’. Submersed in the “bro” culture, his fraternity’s obsession with a poem and its poetess, begin to inform him more about himself than he might be ready to accept. Oprah’s masculinity, sexuality and brotherhood between his closest friends, all quickly come into question as his life marches anxiously forward.
