Brian (Graham Chapman) is born in a stable in Bethlehem, on the same night and a few stables down from a rather more famous birth. In fact, the three wise men (Graham Chapman, Michael Palin, John Cleese) are initially confused, and think Brian is the baby they have come to see. However, they realize their mistake, take back the gifts, and move on to the real Son of God. This beginning is indicative of how Brian’s life will develop. He grows up to be idealistic, eager to help end the Roman occupation of Judea, and joins the People’s Front of Judea. Unfortunately, a desperate attempt to avoid the Roman guards leads a group of people to regard Brian as the Messiah they have been awaiting. Despite his best efforts, Brian cannot convince them otherwise, and is forced into the role of an unwilling savior...
