Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
The Flight of the Innocent director Carlo Carlei explores the life of Francesco Forgione, also known as Saint Padre Pio, in this made for television hagiography adapted from the book by Renzo Allegri. A Capuchin friar whose endless devotion would manifest itself in the appearance of stigmata wounds for over fifty years, Saint Padre Pio was responsible for a series of religious miracles that many sited as proof of God's existence in an era where spiritual skepticism was at an all time high. Jurgen Prochnow and Adolfo Lastrett co-star.
