A senior journalist is tasked with a very unusual investigation in French filmmaker Xavier Giannoli’s unique new story. Palme d’Or winner Vincent Lindon is Jacques, an established, reliable reporter at a well-known regional newspaper. Contacted by the Vatican to examine the veracity of an apparition of the Virgin Mary, he lands on a small French village, where he meets a young woman who is torn between her devout faith and the attention it brings her. Faiths and beliefs are tested and shaken in this strongly woven mystery.

With the support of the French Embassy in Ireland.

XAVIER GIANNOLI’S BEAUTIFULLY PACED MEDITATION ON FAITH AND BELIEF FEATURES A WONDERFUL CENTRAL PERFORMANCE FROM THE GREAT VINCENT LINDON.
