A wonderful telling of one of the most famous stories in history, the life of Christ, even though interestingly, there is a twist - the story is portrayed from the perspective of Mary, Christ's mother even to the point where a fragment of Mary's childhood is shown; the fact were she narrowly escapes danger sort of tells that the battle of Christ's work on Earth was fought from even when Mary was a little girl.
