Long synopsis

Three characters linked by the mythical Maria Maddalena – Mary Magdalene…

Tony Childress, an infamous, egotistical and obsessive actor/director is playing the lead role of Jesus in his controversial new film THIS IS MY BLOOD. When the shoot wraps, Marie Palesi, his lead actress, is left alone in Jerusalem, drained, empty. ‘Selfless’. Into the void within her is poured the spirit of Mary Magdalene, and Marie embarks on a profound journey towards enlightenment.

Meanwhile, in New York City, tv journalist Ted Younger begins his own quest for spiritual truth through his documentary about the life of Christ.

When the premiere of Tony’s film becomes the target of bomb threats by the vengeful religious Right, the lives and paths of these three characters come dramatically together.

Legendary cinema maverick Abel Ferrara explores the greatest story ever told in resonant, deeply personal, revelatory and effortlessly controversial style.
