The country girl, prostitute and follower of Christ to whom Christ chooses to appear after rising from the dead.
A life characterized by passion, cruelty, sensuality and atrocious vendettas interweaves with the lives of the most important protagonists of her time: John the Baptist, Herodias and Salomé.
Having used her charm to seduce the Roman prefect Silvanus and experience a great love story with General Vitellius, she is saved by a meeting with Christ.
Thanks to her faith in Christ, Mary Magdalen discovers that love is stronger than death and sin and that she, a sinner, has loved and therefore will be saved.
