Official Trailer

This French film tells the amazing, true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, a Jew who maintained his cultural identity even after converting to Catholicism at a young age and joining the priesthood. Rapidly rising within the ranks of the Church, Lustiger was appointed Archbishop of Paris by Pope John Paul II. He found a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as both Catholic and Jew, which earned him friends and enemies from both groups. When a group of nuns build a convent within the grounds of Auschwitz, Lustiger finds himself having to mediate between the two communities. Will he be forced to choose a side at last?
