(Chile/France 2016, 85’, DCP, col., o.v. it.s/t)
As a child, Michael got his hands nailed to a tree by his best friend; afterwards, in pain but trustingly, he received a revelation next to a fire. Since then he has been speaking as a prophet in his village, which reacts by mocking him. When he learns that his erstwhile friend has had a bad accident, he decides to heal him by applying his miraculous hands and crosses the desert barefoot in order to reach him.
