Boże Ciało

Corpus Christi

@Corpus Christi@ is about the mystery of spiritual experiences, both in the sacred and the profane, partially drawing on a true story, at times difficult to believe. Although the main character feels a calling, in the face of limitations imposed by formal structures, he finds it impossible to make any use of it. It is a tragic clash with the drama of a reclusive and troubled community hiding a dark secret. (Jan Komasa)
