Joanna, a follower of Christ, sneaks into the tomb after the Resurrection and takes the Shroud that was laid over the body. She hides it and only shows it to her future husband, Lukas. Years later a disciple named Thaddeus comes through their village on a mission to heal King Abgar V in Edessa, Syria and takes the cloth with him. From there the burial shroud travels though history, the middle east, and Europe to eventually land in Turin, Italy fifteen hundred years later. When the first photograph was taken in 1898 the age of science began. Follow the story of the characters whose lives are impacted by the passage of the holy cloth from the tomb to modern times as they go through the adventures and heartbreaks of life.
