LOGLINE
Saint Paul of Tarsus has been dead for thousands of years. Now he’s back and healing the sick. Who will believe? Who will wonder? Who will say it’s not possible? The controversial true life story of trance medium Ray Brown.

SYNOPSIS
Adapted from the autobiography ‘A Mere Grain of Sand’. Paul of Tarsus was born 2,000 years ago, and after seeing a vision of Jesus he became a Christian. After his death he chose to train as a ‘spiritual surgeon’ so that he could come back and heal by using someone else’s body. Ray Brown was chosen for this task before he was born, and from the age of five started having out of body experiences.

To Ray, and his mother Marcia, this was a disturbing experience, and they thought he was going mad. Thankfully, he was guided to people who helped him to train as a trance medium and healer, and prepare him for the time when Paul would use his body to perform spiritual surgery, and healing, on the sick. Along his journey he suffered many serious accidents, as well as two unhappy marriages. Finally Gillian entered his life, and with it came calmness and understanding as she assisted him and looked after Paul.

Ray/Paul’s healing and ‘miracles’ are much documented in newspapers all around the world, with testimonies from many famous people, including Sir John Mills who desperately needed healing so that he could continue with a vital one-man charity show. With their help, ‘the show did go on’. So this film follows the remarkable and still unfinished journey into the unknown of Ray and Gillian Brown - with Paul of Tarsus.
