Father Jonathan Keene deals with the closure of unprofitable parishes. This time, fate and his superiors threw him to a town forgotten by God and people, which is under the spiritual care of Simeon, his friend from the seminary. Simeon needs to awaken faith in the parishioners. To this end, he decides to organize a live nativity play. Residents willingly take up the challenge, but the biggest problem is finding a performer of the role of Mary. Almost all women are now of retirement age.
