Axé sur la papauté de Jean-Paul II et l'impact considérable qu'il a eu sur l'Église et le monde, ce film met en vedette l'acteur Piotr Adamczyk dans un portrait profondément émouvant du pontife bien-aimé.

Le film met également en vedette Raoul Bova (Saint François), Michele Placido (Padre Pio : Between Heaven and Earth) et Adriana Asti dans le rôle de Mère Teresa. La magnifique musique de film est signée du légendaire compositeur Ennio Morricone.
