The Road To Calvary is a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series Somewhere Out There. It was originally broadcast on March 3, 1996.


Working in a packing house, sex in the presence of death, the evil plant manager. Working in a nuclear plant, sex and electricity, plant disasters, spies. Getting rich by black mailing a spy. Working as a test subject on addictive substances. Running out of gas in the desert and having a meaningless encounter with an Indian. Jesus on the road to Calvary - he considers alternatives, witnesses lovers with an audience, stops at a blues club. Praying in a godless world. Woman talks about a man's illness.
