Storyline

When the school goes on an archaeological dig and unearths what appears to be the skeleton of an angel,Lisa courts controversy by doubting its authenticity,leading to a heated debate between skeptics and believers. When the angel is found to carry the words Prepare for the End,the townsfolk fear that their days are numbered but Lisa is exonerated when the whole exercise proves to be no more than an advertisement for a new shopping mall.
