->''"What ->''What would you give to know the truth?"''truth?''



The story focuses on four strangers from "the quiet corners of the globe", each from a wildly different background and worldview than the others, who all receive similar traumatizing visions of impending doom, and are drawn to the same place in search of answers. Along the way, they face their inner demons and learn about ThePowerOfLove.

The story is told in twenty-four chapters, many chapters frequently sub-divided into multiple acts. The total running time for the series is ten and a half hours. The series was released on DVD with added voiceovers, plus bonus features and commentaries, by Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox in 2006. Among the voice cast are Creator/JanyseJaud, Creator/KirbyMorrow, Creator/MichaelDobson, Creator/DavidKaye, and Creator/ScottMcNeil.

Brooke Burgess has stated frequently that some of his biggest influences in the conception of ''Broken Saints'' were Creator/DavidLynch (specifically ''Series/TwinPeaks''), Creator/TerryGilliam, ''Series/ThePrisoner'', and ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'', and all of these are referenced frequently over the course of the series.
