After spending some time there, it becomes clear that the steambath is a sort of Afterlife, where indifferent souls come to tell their stories to God who happens to be the attendant picking up the towels.

surprising oddity for TV
14 October 2003 | by EyeAskanceSee all my reviews

People inside a public steambath realize that they have passed on...and God is their Latino mop-boy! A genuine oddity in the world of TV, this shot-on-video production is certainly not going to appeal to everyone...but for anyone with an interest in strange teleplays, this comes highly recommended. 7/10
