This theatrical contemporary re-telling of the Passion takes place across the town of Port Talbot, with its inhabitants as its cast, crew and heroes!
The town is in thrall to ICU, a sinister, authoritarian and merciless corporation depleting the town of its resources with scant regard for the residents. The atmosphere is explosive. Resistance is inevitable. When a company man and suicide bomber clash on the beach, catastrophe is only averted by the intervention of a softly spoken man who had disappeared 40 days earlier. Revealed later as the Teacher (Michael Sheen), he attracts followers and becomes a focus for the Resistance. His influence quickly draws the attention of ICU, who perceive him as a danger who must be removed at all costs.
