Corpus Christi is the story of 20-year-old Daniel who experiences a spiritual transformation while living in a youth detention centre. He wants to become a priest but this is impossible because of his criminal record. When he is sent to work at a carpenter’s workshop in a small town, on arrival he dresses up as a priest and accidentally takes over the local parish. The arrival of the young, charismatic preacher is an opportunity for the local community to begin the healing process after a tragedy that happened there.



Corpus Christi is about the mystery of spiritual experiences, both in the sacred and the profane, partially drawing from 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 conflict clashed with a tragedy of a reclusive and troubled community hiding a dark secret.”
