About the Film
It was the cruelest of times. Under Herod's torturous reign, families struggled to survive and yet, in the midst of utter turmoil, a young woman's faith is put to the test. Join Mary (Keisha Castle-Hughes) and Joseph (Oscar Isaac) on an incredible journey of hope and discovery. Epic in its scope, yet intimate in its portrayal of this historical family, this “wonderful film” (Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times) is “a family feature that will be cherished for years to come!” (Greg Russell, WMYD-TV, Detroit).
