Her mother died when she was four years old; her surrogate mother abandoned her a few years later, plunging Thérèse Martin into a mental collapse. Then at age 14, she falls deeply in love with God. Not old enough for the convent, she travels to the Vatican to beg the Pope for permission to become a Carmelite nun. In this lavish period production, this award-winning movie tells the story of an ordinary girl with an extraordinary soul. Release date – February 14, 2006.
