This poignant documentary traces the life of German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was one of the first to speak up against Adolph Hitler throughout Hitler's rise to power. Bonhoeffer organized the Confessing Church, the only structured revolt against Hitler, and turned to his roots as a devout Christian for the strength to take a political stand for Jews everywhere.

Father Mychal Judge, chaplain to the New York City Fire Department, is best remembered as the faithful Franciscan priest who was killed on 9/11. The beloved friar lived a fulfilling life helping the needy and wasn't your ordinary man of the cloth: he battled alcoholism and was a privately gay man. Through interviews, archival footage and Sir Ian McKellen's narration, Glenn Holsten documents this extraordinary man's life until his untimely death.

TO BE ANNOUNCED
This particular expose of Dorothy Day is told through her writings (novels and editorials) and personal letters which gives a personal touch to the film that can only be achieved from this first hand information. The film leaves the idea of canonization for Dorothy Day open to the viewer instead of following a biased pursuit.
