Once We Were Slaves

Once We Were Slaves, Short Film


Their fate was identical: death. Their view of themselves radically different. One, a lifelong criminal and a rebel against the Roman occupation, is resigned to his execution. The other, a lifelong rabbinical student and peacemaker, refuses to accept the judgment he faces.

As their history is revealed, these two Jewish prisoners lead viewers to uncommon grace and a chance at redemption.

The second short film from Vertical Church Films (The Ride), Once We Were Slaves will grip your heart with an intriguing perspective never before captured on film.
