Final and least well-known installment in the Mark IV series of fundamentalist apocalypse films. About to be executed by the forces of the Antichrist, fundamentalist Christian guerrilla David is rescued by Connie, an Antichrist agent pretending to be a double agent for the Believers' Underground. Connie hopes to trick David into leading her to the dissidents' hidden base. Meanwhile, Armageddon and the Second Coming draw nigh. Written by

I love the "Thief in the night" series. These are the only Christian movies that really show the view point of a believer's underground movement with out revolving around an anti-christ like the Omega Code and other new films. If your looking for a good movie based on the end-times this is a really good place to start.
However, "Prodigal Plant" is a slow movie. It hits home but doesn't seem to go far in story telling. Some point of the film you may either feel tired or un-interested, but once seeing the film, you still can admire it's place within the series.
Don't expect to see this film on the IFC channel since they are not Christian friendly, but you can buy these films (now on DVD) online or rent them in your local Christian book store (if they rent movies). These films are a must see for either bible study or entertainment.
