Note Originally produced as a documentary film in 2015.
Summary For 88 years, a small Oklahoma town has pantomimed a passion play on a bizarre reproduction of Jerusalem built into the Wichita foothills. A light-hearted and comedic documentary chronicling the journey of a 100-strong amateur cast, a dozen horses, and a very devout community. Once boasting audiences of over 200,000, the Pageant now struggles to find any audience at all. When the man playing Jesus retires, his replacement, a long standing member of the cast, has a secret he is hiding.
