2,000 years ago, two Jewish prisoners await their fate in a Jerusalem jail cell. One, a lifelong criminal and a rebel against the Roman occupation, is resigned to his death. The other, a lifelong rabbinical student and peacemaker, refuses to accept his fate.
As the afternoon progresses, their history is revealed, a history that leads them to a shocking encounter with a mysterious man who changes their lives forever.
The second short film from Vertical Church Films (The Ride), Two Thieves captures the uncommon grace and redemption of the crucifixion from a perspective that’s never before been captured on film.
