The dramatic Easter story translated into a modern setting in a small town American courtroom. The action occurs between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. A man known as the Gardener is on trial, charged with having moved Christ's body from the tomb after the crucifixion. The characters involved in the great drama are called to the stand. Each tells in everyday language what he saw and the way he reacted. As each in his fashion contributes evidence for the defense or the prosecution, the familiar story achieves stirring suspense. In an electrifying, scene, Mary Magdalene steps down from the stand and reenacts her meeting with Jesus in the Garden.
