Synopsis

Marian Kuffa is a priest in a small village of Zakovce in Slovakia. At his presbytery he cares for the homeless, former prisoners, boys and girls from orphanages, the handicapped and abused mothers with children. Altogether, the priest has hosted almost two hundred people. Some die, some are born, people come and go…

A film about strong faith and the value of sacrifice, about how much one person is capable of giving for another, how much he loses like this as well as how much he wins.
