Daniel is 20 and serving time in a young offenders’ institute, where he has found God and wants nothing more than to become a priest. But his violent past means that’s an impossibility.
Released on parole he is sent to a rural sawmill but makes a detour to the local church, where he is mistaken for a young novice. When the town’s priest falls ill Daniel, or Tomasz as he calls himself, steps in.
Bringing a vibrancy and charisma to the village, Daniel/Tomasz discovers an unexpected skill for pastoral care and begins to reach out to a local community, which has been recently traumatised by a terrible accident. Helping them forgive and heal, he finds his own path to redemption.
