Filippo is an unusual mixture of detective, scientist, and priest. He is sent by the Vatican to a small Dutch town to investigate, and probably debunk, a miraculous statue of the virgin Mary. Little does he know that he’ll find a grieving community that won’t allow him to take away their miracle, and an enigmatic, mute young woman – all encounters that crack down Filippo’s certainties about his calling as a priest and as human being.
