Storyline

Messiah explores the lines among religion, faith and politics. It chronicles the modern world's reaction to a man who first appears in the Middle East creating a groundswell of followers around him claiming he is the Messiah. Is he sent from God or is he a dangerous fraud bent on dismantling the world's geopolitical order? The story unfolds from multiple points of view, including a young CIA agent, an Israeli Shin Bet officer, a Latino preacher and his Texan daughter, a Palestinian refugee and the media, among others.

Keeps you guessing

Great original concept and intriguing storyline. I'm not religious, so I look at this as Sci-fi, but let's just imaging there is a god and a messiah. Is this how the world would react? Is he just a fake? Love the mystery.
