Storyline

A young Christian boy attends a druid worship that is attacked by invading Irish tribes. Taken captive, he is taken back to Ireland to become a slave. Enduring many hardships, he finds comfort and eventually salvation in his faith. After several years, he escapes back to England, where he joins a convent to prove his faith. His greatest desire is to return to Ireland to convert the Irish to Christianity. Years later, he is given the opportunity. Upon setting foot on Irish soil, all snakes are automatically driven from the land. He then overcomes many obstacles, including disagreements with the British Cardinal (Malcolm McDowell), to fulfill his destiny, and ultimately being given Sainthood. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Well done tale of the legend despite some bad CGI
17 March 2020 | by justin-fencsakSee all my reviews

I bought this movie for a dollar at the local library years ago and watched it for the first time today on St. Patrick's Day. The cast is great, the running time is short since it originally aired as a made for TV movie on what is now Freeform, and the plot is simple. The CGI is cheesy though. Definitely worth a rental.
