The Ark  

Synopsis

Written by Tony Jordan (Hustle, The Nativity), this film is a unique retelling of the biblical story of Noah and the ark.

Noah, a farmer and family man, is instructed by an angel to build an ark in the middle of a desert in order to save his family and the faithful from a devastating flood – a seemingly impossible task, especially when his sons refuse to believe him and lend their help. Noah risks ridicule from his loving but exasperated family and humiliation from the degenerate townsfolk in his quest to carry out his God-given task. 

Boasting a stellar cast that includes David Threlfall (Shameless (UK)), Joanne Whalley (The Borgias), Nico Mirallegro (Common) and Ashley Walters (Get Rich or Die Tryin’), The Ark is a timeless tale, a story of family, one man’s faith, and his fixation with building an ark that may ultimately save both his family and mankind.
