For many centuries, in a small town on the southern border of Europe, people have  been worshipping a statue of a black Jesus. 19-year-old Edward from Ghana, a resident of  the refugee centre which is the subject of great controversy in the village, asks to carry the  statue in the annual procession and to stand next to the locals that bear its cart. The  community is divided over the response.

On a journey exploring the source of fear and prejudice against “the others”, the  inhabitants of this small European village are called upon to question their own identity,  starting with the very icon of their faith: a black Jesus.
