MARIA'S SON
CECIL BODKER

Maria, a girl from Nazareth, gets pregnant under unusual circumstances. Her parents don’t understand her explanations and they put heavy pressure on her in order to make her go out of their home, of their village, to have the baby. Her boyfriend, Joseph, decides, in spite of the multiple strains and pressures of their environment, to go with Maria in a journey. A journey that will end in a runaway to another country, where people have a different religion, they speak a different language and they have different habits. 

Maria and Joseph will live happy in the exile, together with their little baby Jesus.

However, homesickness will make them go back to their village. She wants, above all, her son to be a “normal boy”. Joseph wishes to have his own carpentry studio.
