The skeptical Catholic priest Filippo is sent by the Vatican to investigate a crying statue of the Virgin Mary in a small border town in the south of the Netherlands. Determined to thoroughly investigate the statue, he finds himself facing a deeply traumatized village community, that is clamping on to its incredible miracle. Attracted and unsettled by Térèse, the silent young woman who discovered the crying statue, Filippo gets caught up in the village’s sorrow while a number of apparently miraculous incidents make him doubt his certainties as a priest and as a human being.
