A common thread of continuous motion like flying at light speed, for transitions between scenes.. along with music video style backdrops & Ally McBeal like fantasy flashes.. throughout the film that continually introduces an array of totally cool, eccentric, artist types and what they might really be thinking.
As it begins, we re flying through deep space.. passing milky ways, nebulas, & black holes. Then, we see that it's been the perspective of a glowing bubble of bluish light traveling through space. We begin to travel again from it's perspective and as we do, we hear the echoes of the many superior beings of this glowing bubble of bluish light, offering their farewell advice..
“Rather than telling the humans they've been mistaken, you know, making them all “wrong”.. instead find a way to lead them to their own conclusion and make them feel like they thought of it.”
The glowing bubble is not feeling up for the big job and is endearingly nervous about this long awaited "Return" to Earth where he'd visited many, many, years ago. Continually babbling about these orders & how best to carry them out.
The glowing bubble begins to hover over the Earth until it gets to the US, then to California.. then, to San Diego. Floating through the town as if to be searching for something. Finally, it hovers over several homeless people in an alley. One who physically looks like how we see Jesus and one as we see Buddha. Soon, more & more homeless people are “awoken”- "chosen" because they look like the many messiahs, religious leaders & saints.. of many known religious faiths.
there's a female singer in this band, who's
been singing this song about a those who
will one day bring about peace on Earth. The
song came from a recuring dream that we see her having as part of the opening.
She's a bit trippy and some who come out to hear the band, aren't even sure
what she's talkin' about.. they
just enjoy the bands music & the good vibes.
All this media controversy about them soars the career of the band and the singer is very mixed about the "success" this controversy is creating. It becomes even bigger news when the ‘tribe of holy ones’ together with their growing cool, artsy, followers - crash the press conference held for those who oppose them. They come in peace to try to explain to everyone that the time has come for the planet to be at peace & all the messiahs have joined forces to bring about that peace.
Suddenly, the whole band and both of them are instantly transported to the demonstration. The band is all set up to play but the lead singer is afraid to go on in front of the heated crowd made of both sides & their opposing convictions. So, Jesus gets up to the mic and begins his speech by looking up and saying slowly... "Forgive them Father for they know not what they do." Suddenly, a white light beams down through the clouds right down on him.. so that he glows. They all take notice and begin to settle and listen because they’re suddenly speechless.
Then, Jesus gives his speech about how all messiahs come from the same source of inspiration and that it must all lead to peace on Earth together equally or they are all false. He explains how he was sent here to fix what he had left undone.. and only made it worse and that he's really sorry. He explains how at this time in history, we each need to be a messiah within.. that we are living in a messianic age.
All the other messiahs come to join him.. and they hug a big group hug. Suddenly a white bubble appears over them & they return to being the homeless people they were. A few tell everyone how this experience has totally changed them inside. With what they know now they can never go back to wasting their lives as before. A few of the folks in the crowd who've experienced miracles from the tribe.. come forward. We begin to see the crowd changing its energy towards them. Jesus (who’s now glowing) introduces the band and they do song that sums it all up & everyone sings the chorus together by the end of the song. Then, the glowing light goes out of Jesus and he becomes just the homeless man he started out to be. This bubble (white now not blue), hovers a bit over the crowd, shines a special white light on them all and then leaves. Everyone starts hugging each other, they realize that it was a force of God & that there's a lot more to it than we all understand.. but one thing they all know is how silly it is to fight over God & that it's time for an appreciation of diversity.. it's time for a real, true, lasting peace.

Moon Rising - a docu-drama
After the band meets a homeless family, they decide to take them to the greenbelt to a friend who's made a tree house and lush edible gardens that blend in with the scenery. He also knows which native plants are edible. In time, the word spreads on the street of this safe haven and it begins to grow- as more and more homeless people arrive. The problems soon begin for the growing number of folks living in the tree houses because the land is owned by a developer who plans to develop the land. It happens to be land that should not be developed because it's in the fragile watershed area and needs to be protected. He was able to use his money to buy the "right" to built there. A growing number of people are against the development of this fragile land. The "greenbelt people" as they begin to be called.. are growing more and more and now they have the support of those against the developer, because they are becoming the caretakers of the land.
