Set in the Holy Land in the first century, the story of Mary Magdalene, a young woman who leaves her small fishing village and family behind to join a new movement. Inspired by its charismatic leader, Jesus of Nazareth, and his teachings, Mary sets out with the disciples on the journey to Jerusalem, where she finds herself at the centre of the founding story of Christianity.
In bringing a unique and fascinating character to the fore, this film places Mary Magdalene at heart of one of the world’s most well known origin stories.
