The Gospel of Us Movie

Easter. Port Talbot is in a battle for its life. Authoritarian forces have taken over and the town is in thrall to a sinister and heartless corporation, ICU, which puts profit before people in its quest to plunder the town’s resources. When a company man and a suicide bomber clash on the beach, catastrophe is only averted by the intervention of a softly spoken loner with no memory. He is later revealed as ‘The Teacher’, a local man who disappeared 40 days earlier but has now returned.

As he gathers followers around him, he is perceived by ICU as a danger who must be removed at all costs.

Adapted from the play's original script by Owen Sheers, this is the film version of The Passion, the ground-breaking theatre event produced by National Theatre Wales which took place in Port Talbot in April 2011.
