This is a baptism video that explores through story and symbol the rich concepts of death and resurrection. It weaves a tapestry of four contemporary vignettes that highlight the truths explained by the baptismal rites. Scenes from the stories are intercut with the baptismal ceremonies to create a dramatic impact. Nature scenes and sounds that invite meditation on the symbols of light and water are poised strategically within the film. The backdrop of the story centers on the Easter Vigil baptismal ceremonies. The four stories reveal the necessity of death to self in order to rise again.
