Based on Terrence McNally’s play about a young gay Jesus, the film follows a group of professional actors who began production of the play in a small church and suddenly found themselves thrust in the world spotlight, touring over four years to international acclaim. We follow the troupe and the playwright, sharing their stories with supporters and protesters as they continue their tour across the country to communities where hate and bigotry are much more prevalent. Mirroring the reflections of change in society today in regards to gay equal rights, gay marriage, and gay faith, this production has become a vehicle for a community struggling to find its voice. And the company of actors found themselves on a journey that would forever change their lives.
