It is written that 490 times you can sin and be forgiven. This motion picture is about the 491st.

The title "491" is based on the words of Christ for forgiveness. "Then Peter came to him and said: Lord, how often should I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times? Jesus said to him, I tell you, not seven times but seventy times seven." (Matt. 18:22). 70 x 7 is 490, but the question is whether the 491th time also will be forgiven. See more
