Maximilian Schell stars as "the flying friar", St. Joseph of Cupertino, in this heartwarming and
amazing true story of the humble Franciscan friar who literally rose to sainthood. In the impoverished village of
17th century Cupertino, Italy, Joseph’s peasant mother convinces the reluctant Abbott (Ricardo Montalban) to accept
her son into the monastery. With the support of the kindly local Bishop who sees in him a great deal more than
others, and by a series of miraculous incidents, the simple but pious Joseph is ordained a priest. Yet some are
convinced that it is the devil, not God, who is responsible for Joseph's miraculous powers – until a final miracle
reveals to all his true sanctity.
