Overview

A child born under religious persecution grows into a man who questions the foundations of faith in director Pasquale Scimeca's thought-provoking, faith-based drama. The year is 1492 and Castilian queen Isabel has ordered all Jews and Muslims out of Spain. When a boy named Joshua Leonardo Cesare Abude is born into the religious strife and is predicted by elder Don Issac Toni Bertorelli to be the new Messiah, Issac joins his exiled people in order to ensure safe passage for the boy. As the boy grows into a young man and follows his family to Naples, his questions about Jesus garner a wide variety of responses from his fellow Jewish and Muslim travelers. When the safe haven of Naples turns inhospitable and Joshua's family is forced to move on to Sicily, his subsequent fascination with Catholic rituals raises the ire of the local clergy.
