Based on incredible true events, this gripping historical drama follows the story of a young boy whose abduction from his Jewish parents by the Vatican fuelled outrage in 19th-century Italy. The Church and the Pope will not agree to return the child, who had been secretly baptised by his nurse as a baby, leading to a global scandal.

Directed by Marco Bellocchio.
“… a gripping, heartbreaking true-political crime story from the pages of history … This already looks like a classic.” The Guardian
