The Sleeping Saint

La Santa Che Dorme

Directed by Laura Samani
Italy, 2016


Giacomina is chosen as guardian of Saint Achillea for the annual procession. It would be the most beautiful day, but her best friend has been found in a state of a seeming death, her body is still warm. The village is hailing it as a miracle walking in procession with the girl instead of the statue.
