    • Synopsis
    • The soon-to-be priest Wojtek gets pulled into the most momentous moral conflict of his life. Just before his
      ordination, two families descend upon his picturesque parish, Kotow, in East Upper Silesia: the German
      family Strack and the Polish Sobieskis. Each has a coffin in tow, along with the claim to rightful inheritance
      of the very same grave plot under an old oak tree. But this German-Polish territorial dispute is far from
      Wojtek’s only problem. Hanna, the granddaughter of the deceased, whom Father Strack foists on him as his
      legal counsel, emerges as a temptation that threatens his celibacy.
