This hypnotically surreal Canadian avant-garde film tells the magical tale of a cardinal who is sent to Canada to look into the events surrounding an enigmatic local person slated for beatification. The cardinal is skeptical about the alleged miracles and finds himself dealing with holy bureaucrats, and a series of missing files; files that contain the truth. Compounding his problems is the zeal of the beatification committee who are so convinced that their candidate is a saint that they have begun placing his image upon billboards. The cardinal insists they tear down the advertisements and they refuse, causing all sorts of problems.
