Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God. Martin settles a dispute between a lady with a bag of apples and a ragamuffin who tries to "borrow" one of them. Also, in providing a warm drink for a freezing street cleaner and a shawl for a shivering mother with a small child, Martin discovers the Lord just like the Gospels promise. Martin, a lonely and sad cobbler, regains his lost faith and discovers the presence of God can be found in unexpected places. Based on Leo Tolstoy's short story, "WHERE LOVE IS," this classic story of faith and friendship is presented in Clay Animation, and narrated by Tolstoy's daughter, Alexandria. Martin is a cobbler who lives alone, is very sad, and has given up on life. His wife and only son have died, and he is angry at God as well as the neighboring townsfolk who seem oblivious to his painful loneliness. Then a holy man leaves a Bible that needs rebinding. Martin eventually picks it up and reads the story of the rich, young merchant who invited the Lord to be his guest but failed to show him the ordinary signs of hospitality. As the story develops we see how the Lord comes to Martin and how he recognizes the Lord in the most surprising ways. A powerful program with a message of hope.
