In the Soviet Union of 1938, Stalinist rule had seen Jakob Seel (Jeff Stewart) lose his position as a teacher and preacher in his small village, and subsequently imprisoned for the crime of publicly officiating at a funeral. Neither the cruelties of the system nor a warden (Christopher Elliott) with a family vendetta would shake his abiding faith, as shown in this fact-based tale. Sal Rendino, Quentin McCuiston also star. 98 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English; featurettes; outtakes; photo gallery; theatrical trailer.
