2 Male 2 Female

Two women introduce us to old man Abraham and his fun-loving son Isaac

The loose, humorous banter between the two reminds us that they are real people, and underscores the tragic dimension of the act Abraham must commit

On a lonely mountaintop, the brokenhearted father lays his disbelieving son on the altar

A dream sequence interrupts the fatal stroke of the knife and Isaac envisions a man with scarred hands taking his place on the altar saying, "You see, you and your dad were the dress rehearsal. My father and I ... we had to go through with it"

An inspiring drama laced with wit and love
