MYSTERIOUS WAYS tells the powerful and courageous story of Peter (Richard Short, The Tragedy of Macbeth) and Jason (newcomer Nick Afoa) who become torn between faith and their love for each other. Peter, a white vicar in a small New Zealand town, wants to marry his Samoan boyfriend Jason in church, but when word gets out it scandalises the devout local community and unleashes a media storm that tests the couple’s relationship to the limit.
