After getting into serious trouble while working as a missionary in Africa, an unconventional Roman Catholic priest named "Father Salva" (Alain Hernandez) is subsequently sent to a small monastery in rural Spain to essentially keep him out of trouble. As it so happens, this particular monastery is headed by a man named "Father Munilla" (Karra Elejalde) who prefers to run things in a simple and orderly manner. Unfortunately, things become quite complicated for Father Munilla when he is informed by his superiors that the monastery--which he has devoted his entire life--is being sold to a real estate developer who intends to convert it into a resort hotel. So with no other options he reluctantly turns to the one person who seems to have a solution--Father Salva. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that, even though the plot was somewhat predictable, it was still relatively unique in its own special way. To be sure, it wasn't a great comedy by any means. But it had enough humor to keep things entertaining to a certain degree and for that reason I have rated it as just slightly below average.
