This film tells the story of Jesus Christ, son of Mary and Joseph and Son of God. When the film picks up, Jesus (Adam Greaves-Neal) is seven years old and deeply loved by Mary (Sarah Lazzaro) and Joseph (Vincent Walsh), despite their struggle to accept that Jesus is God's child.

The film follows the family's return to Nazareth from Egypt, chronicling Jesus' understanding of His own divine nature and purpose, and showcases the family's conflict with the Romans, led by Severus (Sean Bean), who are desperately searching for Him.

Based on Anne Rice's novel Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt.
