Corpus Christi

Boże Ciało

Daniel lives in a juvenile detention center and is haunted by his past crimes. His dream is to become a priest, but his police record ends all discussion. Never say never though, as the Lord definitely works in mysterious – and sarcastic – ways. When sent to work in a remote Polish village, Daniel poses as a man of cloth and not only ends up taking the pulpit, but also delves into a dark secret that eats up the local flock like cancer. A spiritual journey that explores faith and sin, power structures and class clashes, through the eyes of a lovable and morally ambiguous outcast.
