The play is set in the different areas that people work, socialize and worship. As people go about their daily duties they are met by an old man who opens their eyes to the many things they do and leave undone which contribute to the achievement or non-achievement of their full potential and for which they will give an account to the Lord. He shows them that God’s standards of righteousness are non-negotiable and whereas God’s grace and favour are available to all, we only gain access to them when we let God have His way in our lives.
The play seeks to remind Christian in particular and non-Christians that God is the one who rules and reigns in all the affairs of men and as the final judge, His word is to be respected and His will is to be obeyed. It also emphasises the fact that it is only in God and on His terms that there is joy and peace and fruitfulness on every side.
