Faith Can Move Mountains

A group of Greek Orthodox nuns settle down in a remote and beautiful village in Norway, planning to build a monastery on a steep and dangerous mountain overseeing the fjord. Penniless, but with a strong faith, they try to adapt in the new surroundings and gain the community’s trust – to the point that the local authorities are tempted to convert the monastery into a tourist attraction. A unique, paradoxical story about the globalized intersection of will power, transcendence, and profit.
