Unless You Become... (1964)

Film details


David Ross, retired and living in a hostel ponders the relationship of God and man. He sees his son, Stephen, a professor of astronomy and an atheist, deliver a powerful anti-religious attack on television. Horrified, the old man wanders out into the street and the next day is reported missing. Stephen, when summoned, is on the point of making a new discovery and has to decide which way to act. The storyline is used in this film to give substance to the enjoiner: `unless you become like children, you will never enter the Kingdom of God'.
