Storyline

As the sun beams brightly on the hills surrounding Palestine, one young shepherd boy thoughtfully considers the significance of the day. The child, crippled in a terrible accident, has always treasured his shepherd father's tale of that starlit night so many years before - a night filled with the wonder of angelic heralds and a tiny Bethlehem stable sheltering the chosen Messiah. Now, years since that sacred event, tales of Jesus of Nazareth's miraculous birth touch the young boy's faith. When he meets the gentle stranger in the hills - a man strangely familiar to him - the faithful young shepherd encounters a miracle of his own. Written by Anonymous

touching
15 July 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

...like many others Christian films. a young shepherd. the stories of his father. his small desires and dreams and faith and expectations. and a meet changing everything. it is easy to say Jason Buster does a great job as the young shepherd. or than the atmosphere is inspired. or the plot is more than well crafted. the only not wrong but , maybe, not the most useful detail is Darin Southam in the role of stranger. sure, my opinion is the word from a Greek - Orthodox believer, not very happy with the portrait of Savior from Romano - Catholic/ Evangelical tradition. but the film is touching and the story real works and this fact is real important, agains every detail not very inspired.because, first, it represents a story of faith.
