Once he heard God’s voice ordering him to flee back to England, where he was enslaved again, Patrick had to maneuver his way through a tough life.

The film, which is arguably the most accurate portrayal of Luther’s life ever created, does not shy away from the hard theological questions and answers that have made Luther one of the most influential figures of the previous era.
