the body of Christ

Original language: Polish

Corpus Christi

20-year-old Daniel undergoes a spiritual transformation in a youth correctional facility after a serious crime. When the time comes to leave them, he dreams of becoming a priest, but his criminal past is an insurmountable obstacle. On his way to a new job, he disguises himself as a priest and, by a comical coincidence, takes over a parish in a remote town. The unusual practice of a young, charismatic priest becomes an impetus for the local community to begin the process of reconciliation after a recent tragedy. But it doesn't take long for Daniel's past to catch up.
