Jesus Christ Superstar Movie Synopsis

Jesus Christ Superstar tells the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus.

It describes his entry into Jerusalem, the enmity that his preaching and his popularity causes among the Jewish religious leaders, his betrayal by Judas, mocking contempt of Herod, and the trial in front of Pontius Pilate, who, despite his sympathy towards Jesus as a person, bows to the demands of Caiaphas, the chief Priest, and has him crucified.
