'If you could hear the voice of God, would you want to keep it secret?' A historical drama based on the memoirs of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuit order. This is the story of a soldier, a man of vice and violence who, in his attempt to turn to the light, was forced to wrestle with his inner demons to the very brink of death. A Filipino production shot in Spain and the Philippines, the film chronicles his valiant but futile defense at the Battle of Pamplona, his struggles with depression and near-suicide, his trial before the Inquisition, and his ultimate vindication.
First crowd-funded feature film to be produced by an ex-colony of Spain, the Philippines, in the mother country, Spain, about an indigenously Spanish figure, Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit order. Front-of-the-camera talent is Spanish; but behind-the-camera talents (the producers, writers, designers) are mostly Filipino. See more »
May God grant you safe passage on all your journeys ahead. May you find companions worthy of your dreams. May your plans always be bold, and may your courage rise to meet them. May you live to bring the love of God to all the corners of the earth, to the most distant peripheries of His Church. And may your passion always burn brightly - that in God's time, you may set the world on fire.

This is a Jesuit production on the life of their founder Ignatius of Loyola. As the son of a wealthy family, and after reading the Lives of the Saints, the young Ignatius decided to follow in the footsteps of S.t Francis of Assisi and travel from town to town as a beggar after giving away all of his possessions. The film is well made with good actors and depending on your particular religious background (I am a lapsed Catholic), your appreciation for this movie will vary from wonderment to disbelief. I am somewhere in between.
