Academy Award-winner F. Murray Abraham, Daniele Liotti, Dolph Lundgren, and the legendary Max von Sydow star in a thrilling journey into the ancient Holy Land. It is three years after the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. There are rumors that he is a prophet who has risen from the dead. In an effort to control the unrest, the Roman Emperor recruits an investigator to disprove the story. As the search is aided by a beautiful Israeli woman and hampered by Governor Pontius Pilate, the hero is drawn deeply into a deep realm of love, honor and spiritual understanding.
