Jonah is one of the strongest stories in the Old Testament. God speaks to a man asking him to go to the metropolis of Nineveh and speak to the people. Full of fear and unpersuaded Jonah flees in the opposite direction, Jonah boards a boat headed for Spain (basically as far away as he could get in the then known world). He wants nothing to do with God's plan for him or the people of Nineveh. What follows is story of regret, a change of heart and a God who never chases Jonah but meets him in the storm, saving him and making it clear he still has a plan for the person who does all they can to run away from God.
This film retells the story in a new way, made for today's social media savvy generation, to spark thought and raise questions in the heart of those who watch it.
What is God saying to me?
Am I prepared to obey his call?
What might be causing me to run away?
Will I return?
