We Go On

Synopsis: Paralyzed by his fear of dying, Miles Grissom takes out an advert offering 30000 dollars in reward money to the first person who can show him evidence of an angel, a demon, or prove that ghosts exist - anything to prove to him that we go on after our deaths. He narrows the responses down to three viable candidates - a scientist, a medium, and a worldly entrepreneur. Along with his protective mother, he embarks on an adventure through Los Angeles that will spiral into an unthinkable nightmare.

My name is Ronald Coaltic,

and I am not an actor,

but I've owned my model H524...

H52... uh, um...

If you want me

to remember all this shit,

at least stop with all

the goddamn distractions.

I mean, what's going on

over there?

Well, look through

this microscope.

This is what's

actually happening

right under your toes.

(whimsical music)

(crowd cheering)

(engine revs, tires squeal,

glass shatters)


(line trilling)

(woman on phone)

Ads, this is Rachel.

Uh, I'd like to buy an ad.

Print, online, or both'?


Business name?

I don't have a business.

Oh, you want Classifieds.

Let me transfer you.

No, no, no, no, look.

How do I get the real thing?

Like a quarter page

in someplace prominent

on your site, hmm?

Your name?

Miles Grissom, O-M.

And what's this an ad for?

I'm, uh...

I'd like to offer $30,000

to the first person that

can show me definitive proof

of life after death,

like a ghost, or...

or something

I could never doubt.

30 grand to show you a ghost?

You know how every year or two,

there's a headline that

pops up about an asteroid

that's maybe on course

to crash into Earth

and kill us all, right?

And then they say,

"Oops, never mind.

"It'll miss us.

Death from space

is canceled."

Then we get that relief.

We go on about our lives

like there's no asteroid.

But that's insane,

because really there is

still an asteroid,

that we should be afraid,

because we all have one coming,

and it's on a 100% guaranteed

collision course with you.

Your world will end.

We don't get to know when,

all we know for sure

is that it never misses.

And look,

I know that most people

are gonna be full of shit,

but in this whole city,

I mean...

maybe I find one

who can prove it to me.

Just to know for sure.

It would change everything.




Wait now, before you react,

I know you hate surprises,

and I know you want me to call

before heading

all the way here from...

It's really good

to see you, Mom.

I guess I thought or hoped

you wouldn't see it.

Oh, come on, it went viral.

You know, like crazy things do.

So it's what, a work thing?

Mom, I'm serious about this.

Okay, you're making a huge

face at me right now.

Relax your face.

Aunt Lily left that money

for you to help,

and here you go

spending half of it on...

All of it.

Paid the other half for the ad.

You what?

I can't...

We agreed to find you, like,

an actual professional.

Yeah, but wouldn't it be better

if this one simple thing

saved me, instead of, I don't

know, 12 years of therapy?

I mean, I'm in LA and I

can't even drive a car.

Well, that's different.

Not everyone lost their

father to these freeways.


I was 3.

You'd think by now, I'd be

able to ride more than a bike.

You actually think you're

going to find something?

Look at you.

You do, don't you?

This is nothing.

Most of it's online.

Don't tell me

you're not curious.


My tutorial will prove

that the devil

was worshiped on pages

but proof here in the Bible.

Sent from the Almighty God.

When I get flashed by a light,

I get possessed by this

German Nazi soldier.

I don't know why.

I've never spoken German,

I've never been to Germany...

(man) Okay, so I got my

sister out of the hospital

just for this.

She can... she can...

h' she focuses,

she can tell the...

She has to focus,

but she can tell you

what's going to happen...
