This movie, filled with music and passion, is a modern-day rendition of the story of the prodigal son. A son who has everything, including happiness, makes a decision to leave his father’s house and go about his life in his own way. He enters a world of distractions, pleasures, and conflict in order to hide from the guilt and fear that he has done something wrong by turning against his father. He returns to his father’s house, where a warm welcome is waiting for him, but his elder brother resents his return.
The elder brother believes he has earned his father’s love (even though his obedience has really been a search for glory) and that the younger brother deserves punishment. He is envious that his younger brother gets his father’s love even though he has squandered his life in debauchery. But the father teaches them both that love is eternal, unending and there is always enough of it to share. With openness and willingness, all can be aware of the glory of the kingdom.
