An old priest and his church about to be demolished.
A group of clandestine immigrants seeking for protection, who find refuge in that church.
In a circumstance of crisis and discouragement, these people all together will be able to find the real meaning of the word “solidarity” and realize that the church is much more than a place for liturgical ceremonies and golden altars.
