Synopsis by Augustine Chay
Director Marco Pontecorvo’s religious drama stars Joaquim de Almeida, Goran Visnjic, Stephanie Gil, and Lúcia Moniz. Based on real-life events, it fictionalizes the encounters between three children and the Virgin Mary outside the parish of Fátima, Portugal, in 1917. Church leaders and government officials attempt to suppress their testimony, but their story - with its emphasis on hope, faith, and peace - captivates a war-torn world.
