Set at the dawn of the 20th century in a small Colombian town, this drama chronicles a short period in the life of Damian (Carlos Jaramillo), a young man who benefits from the support of his fellow villagers and a few kind-hearted people in the city of Medellin. Damian has impressed everyone with his saintliness, and so the villagers scrape together enough money to send him off to be trained as a priest at a Medellin seminary. After arriving in the city, Damian moves into a boardinghouse, where the women take him under their wing. He leads them in nightly prayers and there are many examples of his exemplary spiritual qualities. After two years go by, Damian starts coming home very late at night and the good women at the boardinghouse begin to worry about what might be going on.
