Two thousand years ago a young Palestinian was nailed to a cross. Just before his death he cried out: ' My God. why hast thou forsaken me? ' He was left on his own. isolated and rejected, to face a cruel and agonising death-the end of a human life. But this same ghastly event heralded the beginning of a new religion.
Owen Spencer-Thomas talks to four people who are living through their own kind of crucifixion - a immigrant facing physical disability; a homosexual coping with isolation: a middle-aged cancer victim and a young widow with three children. All find different ways of coping with suffering and gain a new strength from their struggle.

- not those of today.
