Quarantine tells the story of five wandering souls, each making the arduous journey into the desert to fast and pray for 40 days. Among them is Gally, a mysterious and frail young man who accidentally heals a dying merchant after stumbling upon his campsite. His curative powers quickly revealed as the Messiah's work, Gally is lured by his fellow travelers - led by the recovering merchant - to leave his cave and break the quarantine. With lyricism and a vivid eye for detail, Jim Crace re-creates the harsh Judean landscape where Jesus famously tested his faith during 40 days of physical and mental endurance.
