In the movie "The Adjustment Bureau" , it was never revealed who was "The Chairman".

1) Was The Chairman God? When Norris asked "Are you angel?" Harry said "We have been called that". So this implies they might be God.

2) What was "The plan"? Was it some sort of paper where fortune is written by the God?

3) What was the office of the bureau? Was it heaven?

I could not find any answer to these questions.

The whole movie just depicts a race of powerfull beings that guide our daily lives. If you want to call them angels, you could. The producers didn't want to pin them down to 1 culture or religion, to make it more accesible for the broad audience. As this interview shows, any interpretation is valid.

They originally planned for a woman chairman but left that out for suspense. The plan was just what they wanted for humanity, again it can be mapped to anything religious like karma, faith or...

Point is they tried to be culture independent so everyone could enjoy it. Don't try to pin it down to 1 culture/religion
