A dramatic and powerful epic about Eusebio Francisco Kino, better known as Padre Kino. In his fight to explore the New World, Kino came into conflict with the Catholic Church, Spanish soldiers, Indians and nature itself. Kino's accomplishments due to his strength, endurance and ability to overcome obstacles made him a legend in his own time. An extraordinary film that should not be missed.
