Released from Shame
An ugly thread of shame, sorrow and hopelessness painfully weaves its way through the lives of these women. While one is caught in a shameful act of adultery, another is rejected because of her promiscuous lifestyle. And as a widow is cast out from society after the loss of her only son, another lady battling an embarrassing condition is shunned for 12 years.
Magdalena depicts Jesus’ loving regard for women despite all they may feel counts them as unworthy. In the film, Mary Magdalene acts as both narrator and participant as she recounts the stories of women who were released from all shame after coming into contact with the loving, healing and forgiving power of Jesus. Magdalena inspires women everywhere to recognize the true purpose they are called to…to know Jesus and, with loving hearts, make Him known.
