Synopsis

Full of tongue-in-cheek humour, this irreverent comedy follows Jesus of Nazareth as he struggles to keep both of his dads happy.  While Joseph wants Jesus to get into the family business of carpentry, God has very different plans. Can Jesus complete the new housing development that Joseph has won a contract for AND make his other dad proud? What a cross to bear!
