    • Synopsis
    • Two workers find a naked crucified man in the central yard of an old villa in restoration in the historic center of the town of Quito. Near there a car is parked, and inside it a man is crying in his blood-stained shirt: it’s Antanacio (el Rezador). When he gets caught, mobs of angry believers try to lynch him, while the police struggle to hold them up. “Rezador” is the story of Antanacio, a small scammer who takes economic advantage of a little girl, who claims to have visions of the Virgin Mary and who thousands of congregations consider miraculous. The business gets so great and profitable that it will unavoidably get out of his hand.
