Based on the beloved novel by Joseph Girzone, Joshua is the story of what might happen if Jesus, going by the name Joshua, were to show up in a small town in Middle America. It is a modern parable about how compassion and charity can transform our modern world. Starring Tony Goldwyn (Bounce, Ghost), F. Murray Abraham (Academy Award winner Amadeus), Academy Award nominee Giancarlo Giannini
When Joshua moves to the outskirts of Auburn, he awakens the curiosity of the sleepy town. The locals aren't quite sure what to make of him. They don't know who is, or where he came from, but no one can shake the feeling that they've known him for years.
"Sometimes you have to tear something down in order to build it back up again," he explains to the amazed townspeople as he attempts to single-handedly rebuild a burned down Baptist Church. It is with this simple logic combined with his enigmatic presence that Joshua convinces them to join him. But what actually ends up getting rebuilt is each of their lives, their hearts, their trust in themselves and the each other. Finally, these co-existing strangers come together as a community.
Known only by his first name, his wisdom and compassion places him at the center of the town's attention. This attention intensifies as Joshua shatters prejudice and misconception on his path, and even seems to perform miracles.
Despite his benevolence and selfless work in the community, some remain suspicious. There are those who fear that no one in today's world would do something for nothing. Just what exactly is Joshua up to? In the end, it is the answer to that question which is nearly as extraordinary as the discovery of that same transforming power in each of their own hearts.
JOSHUA is a modern parable about how compassion and charity can transform our troubled world.
