Based on the novel by Colm Toibin, The Testament of Mary is about Virgin Mary’s attempt to deal with the crucifixion of her son, Jesus Christ, 20 years after his death. Set in the city of Ephesus, Mary is both guarded and protected. But she must re-tell the story of her son, from her own perspective, as it has never been heard before.
