 A contemporary gay Christ figure is jeered by fundamentalists, tortured by Marine look-alikes, and rises again to enjoy homoerotic moments with God.  His surprisingly diverse friends join him on a journey from suffering to freedom. He lives a 21st-century version of Jesus' last days in the 24 Passion paintings.
