Drama (1955) 114 minutes

As the boat in which he travels is tossed by a storm, a man named Joel writes a letter to his boyhood friend Stephen and reminisces about the past: As a young man in Nazareth, the orphaned Joel is friends with Joseph, a carpenter, and asks him if his son Jesus will return home. Joseph replies that he will not, as he has been “called” to service. Their conversation is interrupted by the arrival of the beautiful Irene, who is to marry Stephen. Joel is crushed to learn of Irene’s engagement, as he has fallen in love with her at first sight, and although he confides his feelings to Joseph, he does not tell Stephen. At the wedding, Jesus visits and miraculously turns water into wine.
