In confession to her priest, Tekki Lomnicki, a little person, reveals how she dishonored her mother on a trip to Lourdes twenty-seven years before. In Tekki's memory, her dramatic birth, her sometimes painful relationship with her mother, Sister Thecla (a storytelling nun), Saint Bernadette, her rambunctious family, little league baseball, high school musical comedy, the romantic Paris of her dreams, and the fateful trip to Lourdes, all live again. But if she is to win a chance at redemption, Tekki will need all her courage, humor and imagination to face the truth about her life and what happened at Lourdes. Written by Jeffrey Jon Smith

Did You Know?


Because lead actress Tekki Lomnicki is a little person (born with diastrophic dwarfism) and stands 3' 5", her height presented special challenges during production. Director of Photography Fred Miller quickly came up with a way to help the audience see the world through Tekki's eyes: a special rig was built for both still and moving camera shots that placed the camera at exactly Tekki's height, and which was quickly dubbed the "TekkiCam".
