Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Told entirely through flashbacks, this Italian film tells the story of a priest who, in the 1930s, believed he had a call to cure people through the laying on of hands. At the beginning of the movie, two old women meet at his gravesite, and reminisce. As word of his activities spreads, he is forbidden to continue them, and he suffers a shattering loss of faith.
