A high ranking RC priest finds out he has terminal cancer. His faith is tested when faced with imminent death. At the same time he is asked to travel to a remote village in the south of Italy to investigate a mysterious individual, Giacomo Nerone, who has been named as a possible "saint" because he is said to have performed miracles. Before the RC Church proclaim his to be a saint, someone has to play the "devil's advocate": investigate his life and make a case why he should NOT be a saint.
