With 36 awards on the festival circuit, including an Oscar nomination, Polish director Jan Komasa’s third feature is inspired by real events.
Daniel (a magnetic Bartosz Bielenia) leaves a correctional center at age 20 after serving time for unnamed crimes. Having experienced a spiritual epiphany behind bars, he wants to pursue a career in the clergy, but is told that this is impossible because of his conviction. However, rather than reporting for his new job at a small-town sawmill, Daniel  walks into the Catholic church, kneels down in a pew and begins praying. In no time, the same streetwise survival instincts that got him into trouble as a kid kick in and he ends up being the ""new priest'' who brings a certain relief to a town grieving a major tragedy.
Audacious and compelling, this moving drama ultimately raises intriguing questions about conscience and morality.
