Product Description

Here is the intriguing story of the greatest poet that Spain has ever known, in a film that has the depth and beauty of a 16th century masterpiece. Leonardo and Patti Defilippis play
all the main characters, including John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila, and the film also includes a cast of more than sixty extras. John's mystical poem, The Spiritual Canticle
runs as a connecting thread through the piece, and the suspenseful story keeps viewers on the edge of their seats.

Saint John of the Cross (1542-1591) joined the great Teresa of Avila in a renewal of the Carmelite order during the Golden Age of Spain. In Defilippis' warmly moving portrait, John
is seen in his poverty-stricken childhood, and then as a young friar who becomes the leader of the reform with Teresa. As the tension of the drama heightens, he is kidnapped by
his own religious brothers and imprisoned in a closet for nine torturous months. It is there that he composes much of his immortal poetry, and enters into a mystical union with
God. His story will speak to all who long for peace and prayer in their turbulent lives.
