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.

I'm sorry I'm late.

-Hey, what did you... do in there?

-Oh I painted that room.

-Do you like it?

-Is it ok for you to do that?

Oh I mean I painted a room,

I didn't swim the English Channel.

Were they happy?

Are they ever really happy?

I thought it was really good.

-It was good, right?

-It was fantastic.

You were really... amazing.

I'm really proud of you.

Thank you.

Everything ok with

little Raphael... or Luke?

Or Samuel.

-We're doing great.

-Samuel Younger.


That's nice.

What... what's... what's wrong,

baby? What's wrong?

I couldn't help it, if I could've got

home earlier I would have. You know?

I'm sorry.

-You know I'm here for you, right?

-Well, it doesn't seem like that.

I mean, we used to always talk

and now we don't talk anymore.

Oh, it's just this f...

It's just pressure all on me,

you know,

between Brenda and

the Network, it's just like...

I don't know if I'm coming

or if I'm going.

Yeah, but I'm here too.

I know.

You know what?

The show is going to be over

Friday, and then all this insanity

is going to be over with,

thank God,

and it'll just be me,

and it'll be you

and little Samuel.

How you doin'?


Tony Childress

and this is my... my picture

"This is my blood".

I know I'm not supposed to,

you know, come down and

talk to you before a screening

with the... with the press, but

you know, that's me,

hey, what can I say?

At the drive-in theatre that my

father managed, you know, people...

people would come

to see movies and

there was two kinds of movies

that people really loved,

"tits and ass" movies

and they liked to see

horror movies.


I can understand as a young man

why people would want to come and

see "tits and ass" movies because,

you know, tits and ass.

But horror movies kinda baffled me.
