This is the compelling story of Francis of Assisi in the early days of his calling. In answering his own call for God, Francis ignites the spark in the hearts of those around him. Soon he is joined by a band of brothers and Sister Clare, who also seek for truth and a simple life of trust in divine providence and service to God.
Like all mystics, Francis faces the darkness within his own mind and traverses the landscape of doubt and guilt in his search for God. This movie is deeply moving in its depiction of a life lived in full humility, with great trust and deep gratitude. Love is never far behind a grateful heart and a thankful mind.
