An intimate story of one of the most dramatic transitions of power in the last 2,000 years. Frustrated with the direction of the church, Cardinal Bergoglio (Jonathan Pryce) requests permission to retire in 2012 from Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins). Instead, facing scandal and self-doubt, the introspective Pope Benedict summons his harshest critic and future successor to Rome to reveal a secret that would shake the foundations of the Catholic Church. Behind Vatican walls, a struggle commences between both tradition and progress, guilt and forgiveness, as these two very different men confront their pasts in order to find common ground and forge a future for a billion followers around the world. Inspired by true events.Written by

The movie states in the beginning that it is inspired by true events but in fact it is not. Never has there been a meeting between Jorge Bergoglio and pope Benedict XVI in 2012. Their conversation never took place. Bergoglio didn't want to retire but in 2012 he was already 76 years old and in the case of diocesan bishops who have reached 75 years of age it is standard procedure in the Catholic Church for a bishop to hand in his resignation. The usual decision of the pope is to accept the resignation. Also, Benedict didn't inform Bergoglio about his plans to retire and he didn't appoint him as his successor which above all would be impossible since Benedict didn't participate in the conclave in 2013.

We are seeing a globalization of indifference. There is a culture of conflict, which makes us think only of ourselves. Makes us live in soap bubbles which, however lovely, are also insubstantial. We've become used to the suffering of others. It doesn't affect me. No one in our world feels responsible. Who is responsible for the blood of our brothers and sisters? The refugees washed up on the shores of the Mediterranean? I don't have anything to do with it.Must be someone else. Certainly, not me...
