Storyline

A few years ago, tragic events combined the fate of three Catholic priests. Now, on every anniversary of the catastrophe that they miraculously escaped with their lives, the clergymen meet to celebrate the fact of their survival. Their everyday lives are, however, very different. Lisowski (Jacek Braciak) is an entrepreneurial curia worker in a big city who dreams of moving to the Vatican. The problem is that Archbishop Mordowicz (Janusz Gajos) is standing in his way, a luxurious dignitary who uses political influence to build the largest sanctuary in Poland. The second of the priests, Trybus (Robert Wieckiewicz), unlike Lisowski, is a rural pastor. Serving in a place full of poverty, he increasingly succumbs to human weaknesses. Kukula (Arkadiusz Jakubik) is also not very successful, and - despite his fervent faith - actually loses the trust of his parishioners day by day. Soon the stories of the three clergymen merge once again, and the events that will take place will have an impact...

So much, freedom of expression in Poland (our trusted ally), that filming in and around churches were shot in the Czech Republic, they didn't get permit for that in Poland. On the other side "of the blade" (sword), this movie is "blessing " for those stadium like tele prophets, just pointing to the other church sins, so in short no US release for this one. No Festivals also.
