Gabriel Black is sentenced to prison for a murder he did not commit. In a twisted expression of honor, he takes responsibility for the action of a women he loves and pays with his freedom.
Black stumbles upon a "proof" of God, one involving the solving of somebody's cancer. He decides a better "proof" of God would be to verify His existence in a place like the prison he's in--disgusting, violent, hopeless.
Gabriel creates a file where he stores any evidence of the divine he comes across no matter how unseemly. In brutal, honest language, The God File recounts the dark comedy of one man's search for meaning.
