At the heart of the Second World War, priests and religious have given their lives for peace. They fought with heroism against barbarity. They died, often young, before they even lives, and are the subject of a well-founded duty of memory.
In view of contemporary upheavals, was their sacrifice useless ? On the contrary, through very numerous and poignant testimonies, moving archive images as well as unforgettable sequences shot in the very heart of exceptional places of memory, this film sends us a magnificent message of hope.
