Director Statement
Paschal Paidon (whose name means Passover-Easter Child) represents fools for Christ, the ones who seem ridiculous to the world but truly understand the color of life. This film is about evangelism and the audacious hope that the Gospel is. For many, Christ's love seems unrelated to them. For many others it seems unattainable. For the rest, the Gospel is a question that confronts and comforts and later converts. The lily, the good news of the resurrected Messiah, gives color to the life to the ones who smell it. And when Paschal approaches you with a lily, what will you do?
