Storyline

Set in present-day Mexico, residents of a small town are cast in its traditional and intense passion play about Jesus — it’s such a monumental undertaking that it is performed only once every seven years, and it draws throngs of viewers from all over the country. The performers both grow into and beyond their roles. One of those is the town’s rebel, Manolios, who hasn’t set foot in church in years but is cast as Jesus as the town's leaders figure he is tough enough to handle the pressure of the part. But they underestimate both Manolios and Jesus; Manolios renews his faith and, in the face of horrific events, inspires others to find redemption through rebellion. Not surprisingly, the town leaders come to see him not as a savior but as a destroyer who himself must be destroyed.
