Michael, a young mechanic, claims he’s had a divine revelation in the desert. Not believing him at all, his neighbors consider him the town’s fool. When he hears that a childhood friend has been in an accident, he drops everything and sets out on a pilgrimage, walking barefoot to his bedside to perform a miracle. This begins to draw the attention of the people exploited by the mining companies and drug addicts, who see him as a new Christ capable of transforming their difficult life in the Chilean desert.
Director: Christopher Murray / Country: Chile / Duration: 85 minutes / For audiences over 14 years old.
