On December 2, 2000, a tiny band of American monks with
faith and courage and not much else re-founded monastic life in
Norcia, Italy at the birthplace of St. Benedict. Powerful forces
hostile to the faith had expelled the monks in 1810 and almost
two centuries were to pass before Providence brought them
back.
Inspired by the Holy Rule, these monastic pioneers are going
back to the roots of the Benedictine tradition. Chanting the
Divine Office in Latin by day and by night at the very place
where their holy patron was born, they are able to return to the
spirit of their founder, as Vatican II urged all religious to do, in
a very tangible way.

As a result, something extraordinary is happening in Norcia.
Young men from around the world, leaving home and country
for the love of Christ, are drawn to the new monastery and
commit themselves to stability, conversion of life and obedience
at the birthplace of their founder. Their goal is focused and
compelling: to prefer nothing whatever to the love of Christ!

The documentary, filmed in the summer of 2011, takes you into the life of the Benedictine monks of Norcia.
