About the Film

Living in a youth detention facility, 20-year-old Daniel encounters a spiritual transformation, but his desire to become a priest is challenged by his criminal record, which makes it impossible. When he is sent to a small town to work at a carpenter’s workshop, he dresses up as a priest, which leads to him accidentally taking over the local parish. Having just experienced a traumatic tragedy, the local community desperately seeks healing, and sees the arrival of the young preacher as a golden opportunity to find peace.
