The true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, the son of Polish-Jewish immigrants, who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism at a young age, and later joining the priesthood. Quickly rising within the ranks of the Church; Lustiger was appointed Archbishop of Paris by Pope Jean Paul II -- and found a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as a Catholic Jew; earning him both friends and enemies from either group. When Carmelite nuns settle down to build a convent within the cursed walls of Auschwitz, Lustiger finds himself a mediator between the two communities - and may be forced at last to choose his side.

Set in the 1980s this is the story of a Cardinal who grapples with his Jewish heritage while also serving the Catholic church. He becomes a good friend to the Pope and has a pivotal role in repairing Jewish Catholic relations during the era of Communist Poland - where the Bishop's family is originally from and some escaped the Nazi's in World War II. I found this to be very interesting. I hadn't thought of Auschwitz in the way it is outlined in the film during the communist era. I found this film thought provoking.
