Walter Ciszek was born in the United States to Polish immigrants in 1904. He was ordained a priest in Rome in 1937, and subsequently worked in Jesuit missions in Poland and Russia. After the outbreak of World War II, he was captured by the Russian army under accusation of being a Vatican spy, and spent the next 23 years enduring bouts of solitary confinement, torture, and hard labor in Russian prison camps.
This documentary film about the great Jesuit Fr. Walter Ciszek traces his incredible endurance and struggle for survival. It highlights his tremendous faith in God, and the remarkable impact his life has had on the resurgence of Catholicism in Russia, as seen through on-location footage from around the world.
