Olga is an only daughter and she must take care of her father, Mr. Arturo, an irascible man of a hard character who suffers from illness. Exhausted by her job at the law firm, she needs someone to look after her at night and she calls to the last person her father wants to see: Sister Inés, a nun, Servant of Mary. The film narrates the beginnings of the Servants of Mary, a religious institution originated in Madrid in 1851 by inspiration of the priest Father Miguel Martinez and that Soledad Torres Acosta guided in its development and expansion until his death in 1887. These are difficult years in which Mother Soledad And their Servants of Mary are facing revolutions, epidemics and religious persecutions.
EWTN just ran this film as one of their weekly Saturday night movies and it is one of the most inspirational films that I have ever seen. A young woman is called to serve the poor and the sick and dying during a cholera epidemic. Sister Soledad founded the Servants of Mary, Ministers to the Sick in Spain in the 1800s. Other women joined the order against almost impossible odds. They often worked without food and had little sleep. The actors are excellent and the story well told with flashbacks from a modern day nun telling a bed ridden man in her care about the founding of the order . With all the negativity In today's world of greed, hatred and materialism, this uplifting movie is a much needed respite and I highly recommend it.
