An unconventional Manchester family are under pressure from all sides. Single mum Linda spends her days looking for work and hiding from baliffs. Her son JD busies himself cooking up the next get rich quick scheme, her daughter Devon has become a born again Christian, and her best friend Moosha is in the process of gender realignment. When the local community centre is bought by a radical Christians, Devon is delighted, but Moosha’s ‘Rainbow yoga’ group are thrown out – dividing the family and community. To make matters worse, when the bailiffs finally catch up with the family, Devon takes a tumble and wakes up believing she’s Jesus Christ giving J.D an brand new idea of how solve all their problems, but will it work?
Our Kid Jesus explores faith, poverty, and the love of family (even when one of them thinks they’re the messiah.)
