Description

A Peruvian holy man, whom local villagers call a healer, befriends a Maryknoll priest who wants to understand the rituals of the healing arts. Soon, these beliefs and practices would have to comfort the holy man and his family following the death of the youngest child. The death also draws the priest and the other villagers into a discussion about their thoughts on dying young.
