This is Mary. A mother whose son was taken from her and lost to the world. A woman who lives now in exile, watched by those who seek to preserve the sanctity of her son’s memory. But Mary’s recollections of his difficult and tragic death are a truth that few who knew her son now recognize. As the myths grow around her like walls, so Mary clings to the truth, revealing, in a time of turmoil and profound change, her own fragile humanity.
