Headlined by Kevin Sorbo (Confessions of a Prodigal Son, God’s Not Dead, “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys”) and Lara Jean Chorostecki (The Masked Saint), the moving drama from director and Oscar® winner Roger Christian (“Best Art Direction-Set Direction,” Star Wars), JOSEPH & MARY is a recipient of the “Faith-Based Seal” by The Dove Foundation.

JOSEPH & MARY follows Elijah (McCarthy), a devout Rabbi, during a time of unrest when King Herod the Great’s slaughter of innocents claims the lives of two boys Elijah had sworn to protect. Elijah makes it his life’s mission to avenge their deaths, but when he meets a Joseph (Sorbo), Mary (Chorostecki) and their young son Jesus, the beliefs fueling his revenge are put into question. When the time comes to face his life-long enemy, Elijah finds himself warring within whether or not to kill or choose forgiveness.
JOSEPH & MARY artfully depicts the biblical parents of Jesus as their newborn son helps them inspire faith in unlikely places. Captivating audiences with mesmerizing scenery, the miraculous journey delivers a powerful message of mercy and forgiveness.
