After spending years in prison for a violent crime, 20-year-old Daniel is released and sent to a remote village to work as a manual laborer. After finding Christ during his incarceration Daniel aspires to join the clergy, and one quick lie allows him to be mistaken for the town’s new priest.
A stunning tale of faith and redemption, Jan Komasa’s Oscar®-nominated drama features a gut punch of a performance from Bartosz Bielenia. Echoing the central tension between devotion and deception, the setting of a rural village harbors undercurrents of restless turmoil beneath its pastoral façade.
