Based on a true story, this critically acclaimed original drama by Jeremy Stanbary takes place nearly 50 years after the shocking murder of a young Italian peasant girl, Maria Goretti, which captivated the nation. The date is June 23rd, 1950, and it’s the eve of Maria’s canonization as a saint of the Catholic Church, a ceremony that attracted an unprecedented half a million people to Rome. In light of renewed interest in the story, controversies around her canonization, and rumors of an astounding miracle in the life of Maria’s killer, an ambitious female journalist arrives at an obscure monastery seeking answers from the mouth of the reclusive murderer himself. As the tension builds, difficult questions lead to unexpected answers, forcing both of them to confront the demons of their past.
