    The Passion Play

A controversial religious play depicts Christ as a woman. A unique and disturbing glimpse at violence and fanaticism, as told by wealthy suburban mother Mary Sweet, whose daughter was murdered after staging the controversial Passion Play. Mary's voice is a lonely, ghostly portrait of a mother struggling to come to terms with her daughter's death, while dealing with the breakup of her twenty five year marriage.

Left to raise her youngest daughter alone, Mary surveys suburban life with unearthly insight, recalling the strange and tragic events surrounding her oldest daughter's murder. Mary uncovers a story heavy with alarming truths about the dark side of human nature, and the apocalyptic violence and cruelty that men and women are capable of. A deeply poetic, often terrifying glimpse behind the walls of secret, at the evil that churns beneath cultured civility.
