Mirzá Hussayn 'Alí, a privileged nobleman in 19th century Persia (now Iran) founded mankind's newest world religion.

That Bahá'u'lláh—as He was entitled—founded a world religion is beyond dispute. Established in 235 countries and territories, adopted by people representing more than 2000 tribes, cultures, and ethnic groups, and with adherents numbering in the millions, the Baha'i Faith is well able to lay claim to what Encyclopedia Britannica describes as the second most wide-spread religion in the world.

Now for the first time in a feature length documentary, The Promise of All Ages explores the Life of Bahá'u'lláh—from the foul, rat-infested prison of Tehran to His resting place adjacent to Mount Carmel, God's Holy Mountain. He claimed to be no less than the Messenger of God Who fulfilled the promises made in earlier religions—the Bearer of a Divine Revelation that will unite the peoples of the world.

Such a claim evoked violent hostility from the Muslim clergy. Bahá'u'lláh was stripped of His wealth, imprisoned, tortured, and banished several times. Undeterred, He continued to fearlessly proclaim His message to all strata of society—from common folk to the rulers of the world. Today, His teachings have been adopted by people in practically every place on earth.

Narrated by CBC's Michael Enright, The Promise of All Ages presents an historically accurate, deeply moving account of the birth of a new revelation and the life of its Founder.
