A young petty criminal gets a small community back on track after passing himself off as a vicar. A Polish drama based on real events. 20-year old Daniel has screwed up a lot in his young life. Then one day he has a spiritual epiphany in the young offenders‘ institution. From now on, he wants to follow the path of goodness and become a priest – an impossible dream, given his criminal record. After his release, he is sent to a small town where he has a chance to earn an honest living. He takes the opportunity to disguise and present himself as the new vicar. And, strangely enough, after the arrival of the charismatic priest, things in the village begin to change for the positive.
