La Gran Posada is a Mexican tradition recreating the story of Joseph and Mary in their search for an inn (posada) in Bethlehem before the birth of Jesus. Centered on the annual devotional procession organized by San Fernando Cathedral in San Antonio, Texas, the oldest active parish cathedral in the United States, this documentary is a behind-the-scenes look at the procession, music, costuming and foods that are an integral part of the contemporary expression of a tradition with its roots in Mexican colonial history. La Gran Posada is also a compelling story of personal transformation and compassion. It is the story of the journey of Mexican immigrants who arrive in San Antonio with nothing but their dreams - and through La Gran Posada - find a home, a family, and a new life. La Gran Posada represents the journey of life and the opportunity we have to give and receive posada (hospitality). It is a story of faith that a door will finally open and all will be welcomed.
