SCRIPT PREVIEW
Synopsis
All-around "Joe Average" guy, Jess Goodnuff, is shocked when he is arrested for continually falling short of God's desire for his life. Cut to a courtroom, where Jess tries to defend himself by calling forward a parade of witnesses: a co-worker, his wife, his pastor and his mother. Through their sometimes humorous testimonies, Jess's major character flaws emerge, suggesting that perhaps he isn't "good enough" after all. Enter the Public Defender to help. He advises Jess to change his plea to "guilty." Just when Jess is convinced all is lost and sure punishment awaits, the Public Defender (Christ) is handcuffed and led away in Jess's place. A moving illustration of Christ's act of sacrificial love.
