Biblical Connection

When Jesus died, he left behind his group of disciples, a group of men dedicated to Him and His teachings, now without their teacher, forced to live life alone. This film focuses on the three days that passed by when Jesus was buried, and reveals the emotion and sorrow that the disciples faced. John 20:19-23 states that the disciples locked themselves indoors, in fear of the Jews until Jesus' resurrection. No one will ever know what was burning in their minds during those 72 hours, but this film attempts to recreate one of the many possibilities, but within a present day setting. Loss of loved ones is something everyone has to cope with, and this story reminds us to have hope in the future, believing that everything will one day be okay.
