  • About

    In Spain, a young parish priest, André (Claude Laydu), is sent by the church to a small mining village, but his determination to bring the word of God to the diocese runs into trouble. Dismayed by the harsh working conditions of the miners, André is also shocked to find bitter class divisions which have led to pockets of hatred and despair. Despite his strong belief that pure religion can guide souls to higher meaning, André finds his own beliefs in the church severely challenged.
