The Gospel according to Monty Python: In Judea, a boy is born in a manger a short distance from, and about the same time, as Jesus Christ. Three wise men from the East are for a time deceived by this proximity into believeing that he is the promised Messiah, but it soon becomes apparent that he is, in fact, only a hapless peasant named Brian. However, the "Life of Brian" causes plenty of commotion for the Roman Empire and leaves him desperate to escape his burgeoning popularity.
