Jeremiah (‘appointed by Jehovah’) led a long and incident-filled life, trying to convert the unconverted and dangerously challenging the authority of King Nebuchadnezzar and his evil son, Merodach. The film follows Jeremiah as he abandons his family and the women he loves to deliver God’s message in Jerusalem. His warnings about the Holy City being destroyed by the Babylonians results in his being branded a traitor and persecuted. But Jeremiah will not give up and suffers imprisonment and risks his life for his mission.
Patrick Dempsey (Outbreak, Mobsters) brilliantly portrays Jeremiah and heads a strong cast that includes the inimitable Oliver Reed (Gladiator, Castaway, Women In Love), Klaus Maria Brandauer (Out Of Africa, The Russia House) and Leonor Varela (Tailor Of Panama, The Man In The Iron Mask). Directed by Harry Winer (House Arrest, Space Camp).
