He looks like Jesus Christ. And preaches like St. Francis of a**isi. Some say heâ€™s â€œa kook.â€ Others, â€œa blessing from God.â€ Barefoot, and clad in a white robe, heâ€™s walked through 47 states [and 13 countries] on a 16-year mission thatâ€™s captured media attention from 20/20, Time and the Wall Street Journal. Yet who is this solitary figure who inspires faith â€“ and attracts controversy?
The Jesus Guy covers the mystical journey of Americaâ€™s â€œBarefoot Evangelist.â€ In a nation that worships money, heâ€™s penniless. In a culture that idolizes celebrities, heâ€™s forsaken his identity. Now, on a spiritual quest even he doesnâ€™t fully understand, his faith â€“ and your own â€“ will be tested every step of the way. With the intimacy of single-camera filmmaking, Director Sean Tracey allows us to walk in â€œe Jesus Guyâ€™sâ€ steps as he encounters both skepics and believers, changing themâ€¦for better, for worse, forever.
