After spending years in a Warsaw prison for a violent crime, 20-year-old Daniel is released and sent to a remote village to work in a sawmill. The job is designed to keep the ex-con busy, but Daniel has a higher calling. Experiencing a spiritual transformation during his imprisonment, Daniel aspires to join the clergy - but his criminal record means no seminary will accept him. When Daniel arrives in the village, one quick lie allows him to be mistaken for the town’s new priest, and he sets about leading his newfound flock.
