Storyline

The story sets in Northern Ireland during the 1950s. Father McAteer is a kind person with all the altar boys. One of them, is a nice and dreamer boy, who lives with his family in a small village. Not all the villagers like Father McAteer, because he's British and his sermons are all oriented to politics. However, the boy got fascinated with the legend of Barrabas, also known as "the good thief", the man who saved of being crucified with Jesus. The kid also likes to talk with the Virgin Mary, and ask for miracles. However, one day the boy finds a suspicious man hiding at the family warehouse. He will believe that the man is Barrabas, calling him the good thief. In fact, the man is an IRA's member, running away from the police. But he will tell the kid that he's Barrabas and will ask him not to tell anyone about him. Excited, the kid will keep talking to the Virgin Mary at the church, but Father McAteer will hear everything about Barrabas, believing that the whole matter is a miraculous...
