As Jesus Christ spreads His inspirational message across the world, Kholt is born on a farm outside Jerusalem, Israel. The young donkey is considered worthless by his owner, Joe, because he is too small and weak to do much work on the farm. Even worse, the farm animals do not like him either, and Kholt has caught them snickering behind his back.
When Kholt overhears Joe telling his children that he cannot afford to feed an unproductive animal and must kill him, he starts crying. But when one of the children suggests that Joe tie Kholt to a tree on the road to town and allow someone to take it, Joe finally agrees to the plan. As Kholt bravely decides to embrace this new chapter in his life, he sets off down the road with his head held high without any idea that he is about to discover that the Lord needs a donkey just like him.
