Sceptical priest Filippo (36) is sent by the Vatican to investigate and debunk reports of a crying statue of the Virgin Mary within a border community in Limburg.
The sceptical priest Filippo is sent by the Vatican to investigate a crying statue of the Virgin Mary in a Dutch southern border community. Determined to expose the statue he stumbles on the grim village community, which is deeply traumatized and clings to their miracle. Attracted and unsettled by the mute young woman Térèse who discovered the tears, he gets entangled in the village’s grief and a series of apparently miraculous events that make him question his certainties both as a priest and as a human being.
