Jesus struggles with his role as the Christ. On the cross, he has a vision of the regular life he might have led if he were to refuse his destiny.
This was controversial at the time and that put alot of people off, believing that the film was probably all hype, but this is a respectful and complex work of fiction around the concepts of the biblical character and his life.
