I Am with You is a story about motherhood: that of Mary of Nazareth, from the conception of her son Jesus through to his adolescence. It portrays a mother and her relation with her son, supported by the discrete, evolving presence of Joseph, the patriarch who accepts to "step aside", foregoing the dominant male role.
The questions raised by the film address topics such as birth, growth and the upbringing of children, all from a uniquely female point of view. The story has a universal appeal, relating to fundamental moments and deep-rooted expectations that accompany the life of every child. This is what makes the film appealing both to believers and non-believers.
