The "Priest José" (Adolfo Marsillach), they spend to help in a small Church in a suburb near Madrid. But when it comes learns that the parish priest has died, and now he has to do over the administration and the functioning of the church, until the lord bishop decides. The local inhabitants living in poor conditions material and moral. Only an older woman and very blessed "Doña Casilda" (Margarita Robles), owner of the best house of the neighborhood, practicing religion in her way. "Ramón" (Jose Isbert), the sacristan, puts the flow of the miseries of the place. And the "Priest José", instead of collapse, his takes as a great challenge. His mission will try to people to come back again their gaze to God.
This film can be classified as gender "Drama-Religion", which in those years were films very frequently. In this shows a direct the misery of the outskirts of Madrid in a very daring for the years that filming the movie, but probably consented by the religious approach of the script.
Excellent scenarios for this scenario, as well as a successful photography in black and white. The players both children who acted as the people make an extraordinary job, are the center of the film. Adolfo Marsillach makes a good role of priest commensurate with the tastes of those years. Jose Isbert, has one of its splendid performances, undoubtedly a master.
