To love God and to love someone on Earth. The Roman Catholic Church says no but the people of religion with liaisons are becoming more and more.

Thousands of believers belonging to the Roman Catholic clergy preserve their faith while living full-blown love affairs, lacerated by guilt, frustration and the awareness of being “outside the Church”, by the suffering of what is thought to be an injustice. Because in a secular society where everything is permitted, the sexual life of the religious is still taboo.

Maria Corbi and Giacomo Galeazzi give voice to the protagonists of dramatic stories straddling the line between human passion and the intensity of a vocation. Tales of pain and remorse but also of faith, joy and hope. An invitation to reflect.
