One of the most shocking twists in modern Catholic Church history occurred in 2013 with the announcement of Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation, becoming the first pontiff to do so in over six centuries.  Argentine Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, a fervent believer in the Church’s obligation to adjust towards the needs of its followers, is picked to succeed a pope who regards change as a compromise to the church’s integrity.  This narrative retelling of a pinnacle moment in the Catholic Church’s history reveals the journey of two men grappling with religion, emotion, and humanity in the face of multifarious, substantial change. Introduction by VAFF director Jody Kielbasa
