The story of the young and ambitious Iñigo Lopez de Loyola who dreams of becoming a top ranking military official. However, his desires are halted when he is injured in the Battle of Pamplona.
During his recovery, Iñigo experiences a conversion and decides to dedicate his life to God. He travels to Montserrat where he lives in solitude in the caves outside of Manresa. Following a long month of seclusion, Iñigo finally emerges as Ignatius, the saint who will “set the world on fire.”
Based on the St. Ignatius’ autobiography (where he referred to himself in the third person, as a way of abnegation), the film explores the genesis of Ignacio’s conversion and his beginnings as a preacher and spiritual adviser. The film is on his humanity, his conversion, his short temper, his frustrations, his yearning for God.
