Martin Sheen stars as a Magi called Artaban in this fictional story set during the times of the New Testament. After witnessing a sign from heaven with his servant Orantes (Alan Arkin), Artaban believes he is about to be lead to the Messiah. He takes three precious gifts for the Messiah but for 33 years he and Orantes follow the trail, missing Him at each turn. However, during these long years he uses each of the gifts to help people and therefore has nothing to present to Jesus when he finally meets him on Easter Sunday.
