Story Line:

The ballet begins with the introduction of a family in a small town. The local townspeople gather as the wife reads the story of Joshua from the Bible. After a bitter argument the husband forsakes his family in a fit of rage to follow his selfish desires and indulge in the temptations of the world. Brokenhearted, the abandoned wife and daughter cry out to God for the salvation and restoration of the husband. Meanwhile, the husband waists all his money and possessions – leaving him with nothing except his wife’s small Bible. Hungry and desperate, he is forced to look for a job. The only job available is the dirty, difficult job of feeding pigs. Disillusioned, he realizes that life with his family was far better than his present situation, and he cries out to God for help. As he cries out, he realizes that God loves him and sent Jesus Christ to die for everything he has done wrong. He is forgiven and granted much hope. He starts reading the small Bible and comes across a story of Hosea and Gomer; a man with an unfaithful wife to whom Hosea shows great mercy. The husband realizes that God desires to show the same forgiveness to him that Hosea showed to Gomer. As a result, he returns home and his wife and daughter forgive him and embrace him with joy! Everyone celebrates as the family welcomes him home. God is truly a God of second chances.
