Grey is a black and white computer generated and animated short film. It is loosely based on “The Good Samaritan” storyline (Luke 10:29-37 NIV) from the New Testament section of the Bible.

Grey adheres to the parable only somewhat as it takes it’s overlying plot line from the scriptures. The characters of the rich man, the religious man, and the “hero” are all represented.

The story strays from the victim, to the enemy. We see the evolution of the samaritan from a reluctant gang member into reluctant hero.

Whether the term hero can be aptly given to the character is one that the audience must question.
