What is your screenplay about?

Captivated by an extraordinary star, three warrior priests journey through Persia battling evil and struggling with their faith until they are transformed by God on their way to Bethlehem.

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Action, Adventure, Christmas, Faith-based, Family Friendly, Spiritual

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

Quest for Light – Adventure of the Magi is a Christian-themed action adventure which appeals to a broad demographic. Christian viewers will appreciate the Bible-based story which holds true to Christian theology. The fast-paced-action story and it’s historically accurate depiction of the First Century Silk Road appeals to the broader audience. The story provides a fresh perspective on the Biblical account of the nativity and the significance of the Persian priests who abandoned their kingdoms on a quest for a foreign god.

Intrigued by the mystery and theological significance of the Magi, I based the story on Scripture and historical accounts of the era, including the events and circumstances surrounding Christ’s birth. The significance of God’s star and the role of the Magi are brought into focus in the Christmas miracle of God coming to live among men, as a baby born to a virgin.
