Synopsis / Plot
An allegorical interpretation of the last days of Jesus Christ, a very different focus than past portraits of the "Messiah." This Jesus is a man wracked with doubt over his position among his followers and fear of the role God has chosen for him, as well as the pain that must accompany it. He is unsure whether the messages he receives come from God or Satan, and he is tempted by a mortal life filled with earthly possessions and sensual love, resulting in a controversial, though genuinely sympathetic, account of Christianity’s most revered figure.
