The life of St. Nektarios of Aegina from Greece was one of persecution and prosecution. A priest of the common people, his humility annoyed the prideful orthodox clergy, his devotion aroused their suspicions, and they slandered him. Despite being stripped of his church and exiled from Egypt and the parishioners who loved him, Nektarios let his faith in God be his best defence.

The film has won multiple international awards including the Audience Award at the Moscow International Film Festival, the Audience Award at the Los Angeles Greek Film Festival, the Best International Film Award at the Siena International Film Festival, Italy, and the Audience Award and Best Director Award at the St. Andrews Film Festival.

The film was produced by Simeon Entertainment and View Master Films in association with the Holy Great Monastery of Vatopedi, St. Maxim The Greek Institute, The Holy Metropolis of Mesogaia and Lavreotiki and Eurogroup, and with the support of Ingenuity-FO, Deep Dream, NP Insurance, Minetta Insurance and EKOME (The National Centre of Audiovisual Media and Communication).
