Damietta, Egypt, 1219. The fifth Crusade has just started. A friar named Francis goes to the Sultan Al-Malik to announce the fraternity of the Gospel. Instead of being executed, he was received at court.
Who was that strange monk come from Italy who made it possible the meeting between Christ and Muhammad without prejudice?
Who was really Saint Francis of Assisi, the man whose humble example revolutionized Christianity forever?

Thanks to the experts we will reconstruct a brand-new image of Saint Francis, where his devotion to Jesus is blended with the oriental mysticism.
Ecstasies, bilocation, visions of Christ, prophecies, stigmata: we will discover the gifts that the “poor little man” of Assisi received by God and put at the service of the most needy.
